Raising cash and consciousness for These Walls Must Fall – campaigning to end the injustice of immigration detention


RISE! celebrates the epic political song, drawing on traditions ranging from Turkey to the Americas, taking the audience on a stirring journey of revolution and resistance. Built around the beautiful alto voice of Greek singer Iris Mavraki, with Carol Donaldson on piano and voice, Clive Hunte on bass, Aidan Jolly on guitar, bouzouki, saz and symphonie, Jaydev Mistry on percussion, and Alice Nicolay on clarinet and sax. This is music for the head, heart, and soul. Facebook page
