Leader Of World’s Only Blind Orchestra – Baluji Shrivastav OBE Brings A Night Of Goan Music To Hoxton

Blinded at only 8 months, Baluji Shrivastav OBE has spent his life challenging stereotypes around the blind as one of the industry’s leading and most respected musicians. An Indian multi-instrumentalist, Baluji established the Baluji Music Foundation in 2008 – an organisation to support visually impaired musicians which in turn founded The Inner Vision Orchestra. 

Founded in 2012, the orchestra is the world’s only professional ensemble of blind and partially sighted musicians, established to challenge the barriers Baluji faced as a child. Presently the orchestra has 18 members and counting with branches in the UK and India. The orchestra reached the international stage when members of the group, alongside Baluji, performed at the Closing Ceremony of the Paralympic Games at the London 2012 games. 

On April 2nd, Baluji will be performing in London at St. John’s Church in Hoxton, alongside world-renowned opera singer Patricia Rozario OBE. The night will be celebrating the music of Goa and is sure to be full of spectacular artistry and passion.
