Last night I was really moved by the Jeremy Loops set/show at the Durban Botanical Gardens.
Awhile back the Fulton School for the deaf made this video using a Jeremy Loops song:
Jeremy Loops was moved by this and asked the students to come and perform on stage. I noticed a friend of mine Gary uploaded some footage of it:
(The sound quality is quite bad)… but you get the gist of the moving moment in music.
He taught us a few hand signs to encourage and thank the deaf students.
In his instruction to us he said “After the song I hope none of you f#ckers will clap.”
Because that would be insulting to the deaf…
So we hand signaled our applause:
The whole moment was another glimpse of when humanity does something beautiful…
