Love and Longing Choir preformed at Kala Gallery as part of Voices Exhibition curated by curated by Mayumi Hamanaka

For this night we will join as a group to sing songs of desire, heartbreak and hope. In unison perhaps we will find some answers, or at-least feel a little less alone.

Singing together is a scared human practice. Let go of feelings of anxiety and sadness. You are part of this group. Your consciousness is a part of this time, here now, on this planet along with everything else. 

This rhythm, tonight, connects our energy. It is a physical beat, a nostalgia for the past and a prayer for the future. Breathe in deep, strong and true. Some say humans sang before we spoke.
