This Sunday, Stronger on Sundays returns with music held right at its centre. S.O.S offers a safe space in which music is used to build a community of like-minded seekers of spiritual answers to current social dilemmas. Musicians and artists offer their expressions through live performance. Together guests share their thoughts on matters ranging from injustice and equity to our shared human experiences and connections to each other. Together, we can listen. We can learn. We can reflect. We can grow.
Joining me in the room this Sunday is:
Ben Okafor: a Nigerian born “Socio-spiritual conscious” musician whose music and early life were shaped by his childhood experiences as a victim of the civil war in Nigeria and at the age of 13, he fought as a boy soldier. The pain and destruction he witnessed during that period soon began to influence the lyrics he wrote; his songs reflecting a heart-felt plea for justice, truth and love.
Rowland Sutherland: an esteemed flautist of West Indian heritage whose accomplishments have seen him enjoy an international career in varying fields from orchestral (Philharmonia, Royal Philharmonic, London Philharmonic) to pop, jazz and world music, having worked alongside Nitin Sawhney, Courtney Pine, Marc Almond and Joss Stone.
Dr Kathy Bullock: is an educator, scholar, singer, accompanist, arranger and choral conductor who specialises in gospel music, spirituals and classical works by composers from the African diaspora. A Professor Emerita of Music from Berea College in Berea, Kentucky, she is currently teaching, performing, and conducting workshops and other programs on African American music throughout the United States, Europe, and Africa.

DONATIONS: Give What You Can
As well as encouraging important reflections around spiritual and social matters, Stronger on Sundays invites us all to consider our thoughts on how we give and receive. S.O.S endeavours to foster in us all a desire to keep the giving-and-receiving wheel turning and in a balance.
The invitation is to be guided by your heart centre in deciding what monetary contribution you can offer.
As a rough guide, a contribution of £5 to £25 (or your currency equivalent) is suggested but please adjust the amount to comfortably suit your own budget. This is about heart-giving.
All monies offered will be equally shared between all participants. In choosing to participate in this event, each contributor is donating their time, gifts and energies as they believe in the importance of giving voice to the subjects being raised.
Monetary offerings can be made via the Stronger on Sundays Paypal account by clicking here: http://paypal.me/strongeronsundays
