Propelled by an ancient faith deep within their genes, billions of birds hurdle the globe each season, a grand passage across the heavens that we can only dimly comprehend and are just coming to fully appreciate. They are not residents of any single place but of the whole, and their continued survival rests almost entirely in our hands.
- Living on the Wind: Across the Hemisphere with Migrating Birds, Scott Weidensaul, North Point Press: 1999
A musical metaphor for the richness and interdependence of life in all its forms, Flyways seeks to help conserve birds and also the indigenous music traditions along the Great Rift flyway, Accompanying the music traditions is a body of cultural knowledge that is in danger of being lost. Your support helps harness the timeless languages of birds and music to bring people together in common cause across borders and cultures.
