Refugee Week World Music and Arts festival – highlights
Live at Centrala
I wish I’d had an uncle who could sing like Didier Kisala. He could have sung me anything, words about slugs or silver fish, shopping for carrots, the Anglican priesthood, it would all have sent me to creamy sleeps when he babysat. I didn’t. But you do. Born to sing, with an undefeated heart. You sense Didier has the kind of unbridled optimism in human nature that catches hold and creates movements.
Didier Kisala presents a new song commissioned by Celebrating Sanctuary for Refugee Week 2021 responding to this year's theme, We Cannot Walk Alone.
Refugee Week is a UK-wide festival celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees and people seeking sanctuary. Founded in 1998 and held every year around World Refugee Day on the 20 June, Refugee Week is also a growing global movement.
