Nigel Osborne was central to our work at the Pavarotti Music Centre. He initiated the schools programme there and played a lead role in the introduction of music therapy in Bosnia Herzegovina. 16 years after I left the centre Nigel continues with his great work. He tells me that this BBC report on his music workshops with Syrian refugee children in the Bekaa Valley provides “a few echoes from our former lives”. Certainly an echo for me, but for you Nigel, a positive and living rythmic beat that is a long way from being an echo.
