PASSING CLOUDS

 

ITS MORE THAN A VENUE

ITS MORE THAN MUSIC

Its our home

a job centre,  

A community base

Wisdom etched into every brick

 

ITS MORE THAN A VENUE

Multicurtiaul paradice

A new paradime

Hearts open to sparkle and shine

Profound energies align

 

ITS MORE THAN A VENUE

Its our heritage

A place souls live

Started as a printers them empty

Left alone for ages

Empty pages

Then filled with profits and sages

Gods and Godesses

Manifested a vortex

Dancing, Singing, Playing, Learning, uniting,

Eleanor Wilson founded Passing clouds

Attracting eclectic worldly sounds


 

ITS MORE THAN A VENUE

It is a space to give back to those who came before you

Musicians roll through

Williams, Adeose Wallace

The Sunday jam sessions

Challening the ancestors

From African tradition

Jembe providing the rhythm

Luzmira and the Song birds sing

Rappers be spitting

Gems we feeling

Planetman with his little blue ball

Carved a Thriving  scene

From the love we played everyone is eating

 

ITS MORE THAN A VENUE

Its a university

Promoters learning to earn money

From passion

Sharing magic

All vibes and Pressure

You cant measure

The power of roots

Grow crews

Natty

Lorenzo

This is an urgent Union

frusion

Supporting communities

To grow

From realness

No agendas

Monthly targets

Support for new ideas

Born from love no fear

 

ITS MORE THAN A VENUE

Its uniquely magnificent

Carpets, sofas found on hackneys pavements

Treasures from the roads

Passing Clouds is Hackneys Living room

A cultural hub,

Rich in diversity,

Dressed in the finest, cloths,

Decorated with multicolours

Over the year the energy of the building reflecting in its appearance

Rainbow ceilings

Chackra steps painted from Francessca love artist,

Psychedelic art rainbow projected into Dalston

The graff on the front made by Tokio Aoyama

Girls On top painted the sides

Worlds collide

 

ITS MORE THAN A VENUE

Lyrically Challeged

Female lead hip hop

Shay D, Angel, Sonority, Sonny Green, DJ Shorty,

A human event with hip hop rude boys mixed with hipps

Also a safe space for the gay community

Mixed up in a pot

Beat Roots provides the grooves

With Sam and the Whomp

Congo Natty passing through

ITS MORE THAN A VENUE

One love get real

Events for informations and for hearts to heal

 

ITS MORE THAN A VENUE

its the peoples kitchen

Cuisine made from the left overs

From the local shop

Cooked by everyone in a massive pot!

Shared as a family dinner

The electric swing nights

Jazz old skool delights

Ewen Bleach

His energy reachs

The people

At Passing Clouds everyone is equal

 

ITS MORE THAN A VENUE

a space to learn and grow

How to be united through differences

Create a new flow

A culture of love

A culture of creation

More than a venue it peacefully houses humans and music from all nations

Transforing society

Illuminating our city

Now the rich see that the culture can be made into revenue

Shut it down

Shut it down

Cause now this town is cool

We need more luxury flats

For the fat cats

An energy of greed

Destroying creativity

Putting a price on

What we created by being free

 

ITS MORE THAN A VENUE

its a demonstration

A protest

Its actual proff

Of the power of  oneness

 

Now it has grey bricks laid empty

As a currency of evil

Steals the soul from London

 

ITS MORE THAN A VENUE
