Journey Through Conflict
Please note this performance will last 1 hour 15 mins.
Major-General Andy Salmon CMG OBE was the last British General in Basra, after three campaigns spanning 19 years of turmoil in Iraq. He takes you on an emotional and personal journey through conflict, set against a backdrop of three works of art, suffused with live piano improvisations from Australian pianist and film composer Tom Donald and haunting vocals from Kurd Nevroz Oremari. This is a story of resurrection, redemption and hope. A story of communities and faiths uniting to further peace and reconciliation.
With Call to Prayer by Ismail Ginwalla MBE
“… extraordinarily special live music…an elegy to loss but pointing towards a horizon of peacefulness…”
