GIVING VOICE TO THE SILENCED
We're still here
International artists based in the Bay Area and Germany (listed below) have collaborated since the confinement began to collectively create this song and to be able to offer it to the world with the aim of conveying hope and reaffirming that music heals and helps to overcome difficult obstacles, such as those we are currently suffering. The social safety net for artists is non-existent, and so the consequences for artists who lose income affect the livelihood of their partners and children.
All the funds obtained through GoFundMe will support the musicians involved with Lyrics of Sada though an emergency fund so that they can cope with their regular life expenses such as rent, food, and access to health care. Please, support however you can, every little bit helps!Learn more
LYRICS OF SADA
Lyrics of Sada is a project that seeks to document refugee stories through music, film, and the development of composer collaboration tools. We connect with refugee musicians to develop and produce their musical compositions as well as filming a documentary about their lives with music and how they have been affected by displacement. Our Lyrics of Sada volunteers are SF bay area musicians, educators, and visual storytellers. We seek creative journey and cultural exchange as we help to elevate the voices and stories of refugees. The goal of Lyrics of Sada’s humanitarian program is to compile music and produce documentaries that showcase a larger story of migration, displacement, and the pursuit of dreams.
Lyrics of Sada will start broadcasting and exploring new music with our internet radio program.
An online collaboration tool for musicians to interact through an open platform in order to exchange music and learn about other cultures.
