Hope Has Wings is a new musical piece, written and composed as part of Welsh National Opera's community outreach work with refugees and asylum seekers living in Cardiff in 2019. Through a series of workshops held at Oasis Cardiff, refugees and asylum seekers worked with writer, Sarah Woods and composer, Boff Whalley to create a song around the theme of hope. The result brings together a unique mix of classical music, African beats and Iranian, Kurdish, Algerian and South American influences in a moving, thought provoking and multi-lingual work.
