MAI are Guardian Charity Award winners 2016!

We are delighted to announce that we have won the 24th Guardian Charity Awards 2016. Jane Asher, one of the judges choosing the winners from the short-listed finalists, said: “They use the power of music in such a wonderful way that is so totally changing lives of people who have been through such horror, that one can only marvel at they they’ve achieved.”

Jeremie, torture survivor tells us how music has changed his life

“Can you believe that I had never sung and written a song before I joined Stone Flowers? Fortunately, now and due to the magic of music, I am very proud of myself because I can sing and write songs that can impress people. After the last performance at Manchester Museum, one gentleman from the audience told me: ‘You have energy, you are fantastic, and you have a star hidden inside of you’.” Ahead of Stone Flowers’ second performance at Manchester Museum in celebration of International Human Rights Day on Saturday 10 December, Jeremie, singer and song-writer in the music collective, tells us about why he is involved in the project and what performance means to him.
