Detroit Indian Women’s Association joins hands with Shanti World Music to present a rare musical experience to benefit abuse victims and survivors at LACASA Center.
The Harmony 2023 concert features an amazing line up of award-winning musicians from across the globe as they bring eclectic sights and sounds to the stage of the Brighton Center for the Performing Arts on May 20.
