A SERIES of concerts presented by Harmony Support Links (HSL) in Ipswich will present the music of many cultures.

The first, later this month, explores Indo-Japanese music and singing through the talents of both Brisbane and Ipswich performers.

Carl Rathus will display his talents on the shakuhachi wind instrument which was introduced to Japan during the 8th century.

Concert organiser Sandra Kovac will sing Indian folk songs and play classical music.

Ms Kovac travels regularly to Varanasi, India, to take instruction from her music teachers.

When she's in Australia, that contact is maintained online.

Ipswich is home to individuals and families who came to Australia from 146 countries around the world.

Their cultures enrich the fabric of Australian society.

HSL president Roy Taylor said members of his group had taken part in several music festivals.

"The Indo-Japanese concert will run for two hours with a half-hour break," he said.

"We also do yoga classes and I run computer classes for migrants.

"HSL helps new people."

The Indo-Japanese concert will be held at the Humanities Building, 56 South St, from 6.30pm on Saturday, June 30. The cost is $20. Phone 3812 9161 or 0418 764 331 with inquiries.

The next HSL multicultural concert on August 26 will be Samoan.
