I recently had the good-fortune of creating a website for a new venture in London: World Heart Beat Music Academy. Check out the finished site here. The project is the dream of my dear friend Sahana Gero, and I’m really proud to play even a small part of making it a reality. The motto is an excerpt from Sri Chinmoy’s writings:
“We are all truly unlimited, if we only dare to try…”
— Sri Chinmoy
Sahana’s dauntless enthusiasm and inspiration has for many years been the driving force behind the 51st State Band; a huge orchestra for children and young people in West London. The band performed last month at the Royal Festival Hall with jazz legend Julian Joseph. You can see videos and photos at 51stStateBand.org.
“The World Heart Beat Music Academy envisions a world where music, as a universal form of communication, bridges cultural, political, economic and linguistic barriers.
The Academy aims to bring the myriad of the world’s cultures together through music, providing an environment where all people can experience harmony with their fellow citizens and be empowered to create a feeling of identity and oneness with humanity at large.”
