“You can blow out a candle, but you can't blow out a fire. Once the flames begin to catch, the wind will blow it higher.”
 Peter Gabriel, Biko

I've been fortunate enough to have heard this song performed live about 8 times over the last 30 odd years. This new version has been released to raise funds for an important charity, and also celebrate Gabriel's 71st birthday, and features a range of world musicians. It also keeps alive the memory of Steve Biko and others in similar situations.
