Welcome to Baluji Music Foundation

Baluji Music Foundation is an inclusive organisation encouraging participation in music by people from different cultural perspectives, we especially welcome blind and disabled people.  We promote the understanding and enjoyment of music and performing arts from the Indian Sub-Continent in all it’s traditional and evolving forms. Our motto is “sharing the joy of music” which we promote through performances, workshops, collaborations, research and exciting projects. Our showcase project is the Inner Vision Orchestra of talented blind musicians performing nationally and internationally. 

We are the only promoters of regular events by blind musicians in the UK. We have moved online during lockdown with a series of solo concerts and interviews with Inner Vision Orchestra musicians on YouTube Premiere and on www.theBlind.TV, which is our 24 hour internet TV channel featuring blind people doing all kinds of interesting things. Our new series of free Inner Vision Orchestra music workshops will commence on the 3rd March 2021 at 7pm with an Arabic music workshop with Ziad Sinno, please email to register.  We will launch our 2021 series of Blind Spot Events, live from St John's Waterloo in April, stay tuned.

Inner Vision Women performed a deeply moving concert in the shadow of lockdown on March 16 at RichMix - catch it here on YouTube. We recently launched our BlindSpot series of socially distant concerts at St John's Waterloo. In 2020 this included a garden show featuring Kate, Baluji and Rishi, a lunchtime recital featuring Victoria and Kevin - here and performances for the Commonwealth Resounds Virtual Carol Service here.   The Inner Vision Orchestra also featured on Baluji's new album 'Indian Classical Interactions' with their first studio recording - do please listen and like here on Spotify!   On December 3 2019 Interactions-Baluji National Tour  funded by Arts Council England with Workshops for Blind & Visually Impaired people came to an end.  Click here for more info.
