Songs By The Fireside
In the last few weeks, the Black Lives Matter movement became omnipresent once again. The many forms of systematic racism have led to way too many deaths over years and decades, not only in the US, but all over the world. The continuous violent murders of women, children and people of color in my home country, South Africa, leave me with a heavy heart and a deep sense of responsibility to raise my voice. I always felt that I communicate best through my songs. When I sing, I am able to see the world in a clearer light and find the courage to speak up.
I have something to say and I will go back to the oldest and purest form of storytelling to do so. For the next few weeks, I will be sharing „stories around the fireplace“, embedded into my project badams53 - a series of songs that are stripped down to guitar and voice. Join me and hear my message to the world: Don’t be afraid. Now is the time to take a stand. You decide what you will tell your children, when asked about what you did in the struggle of a generation.
