Music is a way to remember, cope with issues of the past and deal with present-day realities. Music enables people to discuss issues that are rarely talked about. Music comforts people, documents, evokes memories and creates new connections. Moreover, it educates younger generations about their history and culture.
Through music, people can speak about their past experiences with conflict, insecurity and violence; topics which are not often discussed in public places. Music can be seen as an instrument to address sensitive issues and document events. By creating a platform for artists, “Wandering Songs” can be part of this process.
