John Aram returns with a new project, transforming a 16th century popular song into a modern, Progressive setting. The original “Flow My Tears” dates back to the time of Shakespeare. Aram’s version, which features singer, Ayanna Witter-Johnson, is a purposeful examination of the link between the old and the new.
Says Aram himself: “I think it comes down to a quote from one of my favourite musicians and composers, Duke Ellington. To paraphrase him: “There are simply two kinds of music, good music and the other kind…” This was the driving force for the project. I think the best songs tell a story and resonate with an audience. I hope that our version manages to do this.”
