Bilkis Malek, founding Director of Transculturalvisions says, “Harmonies from Classical Melodies is the culmination of the second chapter of the Singing Cultures journey. Last time choristers were inspired by African Classical Music to feel ‘anything is possible’. This time they have delved deeper into the challenges for building that ‘better world’ imagined by African composers. The result is thought provoking melodies honest about the challenges for ‘humankind’ but which also leave you with a real sense of ‘hope’. Not to be missed.”
