Prayer for Japan, London, 4:30p-6:30p, Sunday 27th Nov
This is a post on behalf of friends whom I worked with on earthquake-relief in Pakistan in 2005.
Acclaimed Japanese Chamber Musician and Soloist, Kanako Wakatsuki teams up with 13 yr old Japanese-English violinist wonder, Hana Mizuta-Spenser to perform a concert to support the on-going reconstruction of Japan
and to mark the dignity of a people’s response to the devastating earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster that struck Japan on 11 March, 2011.

Since its launch in 2005, Alam al-Khayal, a Trust for Education and Culture, has been actively working to strengthen civil society in various parts of Asia by promoting an enlightened understanding of cultures and shared traditions. In response to an increasing request by the Asian community of England and Scotland, AK is making its debut in London in November 2011 by hosting a concert in aid of the on-going relief and reconstruction work in Japan.
The concert will be preceded by an introduction to Alam al-Khayal by Ms. Nudra B. Majeed (founding trustee of AK) who will also highlight the lessons to be learnt from the dignity and grace of the Japanese people in the face of unimaginable tragedy; lessons under-pinning the same universal values promoted by AK and by many civil society organisations in the world today.
The venue of the event is the beautiful Old Hall of Lincoln’s Inn, which has itself, since its inception in 1490 witnessed many a vicissitude in human fortune. No less is it fitting as a venue given its own history in the development of music and the ‘revels’; where ‘the greatest nobility of the Kingdom often placed their children, not so much to make the law their study, but to form manners and to preserve them from the contagion of vice’.
Alam al-Khayal invites you to an afternoon of inspiration where Japan’s very own musicians extraordinaire will play, with their healing hands, a music of prayer for Japan.
