Stone Flowers perform at IWMN
Following the Working For Peace Expo (September 18 & 19 ), two of the Expo’s participating organisations returned to IWMN last Sunday (September 25) as part of the Stone Flowers performance and album launch. Stone Flowers are a creative music group supported by Musicians without Borders and Freedom from Torture NW. They have a been described as “A moving and truthful journey with expressions of protest, peace, love and hope. An original song-cycle in English, Lingala, Farsi, Kurdish, French and Kikongo, influenced by folk, jazz, classical, spoken word and hip-hop music”.
Their music filled the Main Exhibition Space of the museum during two packed performances on Sunday and the audience erupted with applause after each song. Visitors of all ages were gathered to watch the Stone Flowers and comments were left by visitors who said the event was ”really important for thinking about war and peace and supporting survivors”. The Stone Flowers CD album is available to buy here.
