In 2020, Shabir launched LETTERS, a star-studded musical webisode focused on hope and resilience for our migrant worker friends.
The webisode is available in two versions, one in Tamil and one in Bengali — featuring poems, music and messages of hope, strength and resilience. LETTERS is designed to entertain, engage and enrich the lives of migrant workers in Singapore during this COVID-19 situation.
The webisodes feature prominent musicians across the region, including the likes of The TENG Ensemble, Iman Chakraborty, and Jeremy Monteiro. It was produced by Shabir Music Academy in collaboration with the Covid-19 Migrant Support Coalition (CMSC).
Starring Shabir and The TENG Ensemble for the Tamil webisode and Iman Chakraborty and Jeremy Monteiro for the Bengali webisode, LETTERS takes viewers on an uplifting musical and literary journey to strengthen their minds and hearts.
Through the webisode, migrant workers experienced a different form of entertainment – one that is engaging yet reflective. LETTERS also engages its audience by inviting them to submit their own renditions of their favourite poems and songs.”
