I was honoured to be invited by the Bangladesh Government to give the keynote speech on the national day commemorating the genocide in which an estimated three million people lost their lives in one year during the birth of their country in 1971.

I was honoured to be invited by the Bangladesh Government to give the keynote speech on the national day commemorating the genocide in which an estimated three million people lost their lives in one year during the birth of their country in 1971. The Minister presented me with an original copy of the poster of George Harrison’s Concert For Bangladesh, which Bob Dylan and Eric Clapton also played at, a great reminder of the power of music to contribute to social justice.
