This video is a reflection of some of the musicians who participated in the Ha Orchestra International Exchange Programme in Denmark Copenhagen 2015.
Gameli Tordzro's Azorli Blewu captures the feeling of friendship, sharing, collaboration and family we all felt working together, listening to each other, learning from each other and enjoying the each other's warmth and company.
It was a healing and enriching experience for all in the face of difficulties and challenges in which people find themselves as migrants trying to find an alternative life to the poverty, war and suffering or just trying to live and work somewhere else in the world.
In our music, and in the company of each other we demonstrate and share with the rest of the world how easy it is not to be afraid of each other, and how good we can look and feel together as people from different cultures and backgrounds sharing our various experiences and enriching each other through that.
Ha Orchestra is the first African Orchestra in Scotland set up to bring musicians and their array of instrument from various African countries living in Europe together to explore the unique rhythms, tones melodies and harmonies in a new symphonic experience that portrays the African diaspora and its richness.
