The audience in the Hackney Empire on November 1 was moved, delighted and drawn in to the music and dance as The Skies are Weeping event unfolded. From the opening whispered lament of The Singer of Wind and Rain, through the excitingly different jazz fusion with Near Eastern music of Tsivi Sharrett and the TS Ensemble and the joyous exuberance of the Al-Hurriyya Dance Group to the atmospheric The Skies are Weeping cantata, we joined emotionally with singers and dancers from different cultures and backgrounds, in harmony and peace.
The Skies are Weeping Project thanks all who took part, the patrons and supporters, the Hackney Empire and, not least, the wonderful audience. Please help that little bit more, with a contribution to the project costs.
