Professor Alan Knight - OBE
"it was 20 years ago when I found myself standing in tropical rainforest of Papua New Guinea. Over-logging had ripped the heart and soul of the forest. I was left feeling feeble and dirty. Twenty years later the forest stewardship council is having real Impact in the forests, protecting and restoring the marvellous gift of nature. Music and song nurtures and enhances our soul and heart so I know a movement that directly links the heart and soul of music and mother nature will create a poweful song that will resonate and stay in tune with the generations of today and tomorrow. My wamest congratulations... play it again Tom. *
