Beirut ~ Geneva


In the context of the 70th birthday of the United Nations, two musicians performed a very strong Musical Postcard send to us by 15 year old Hussain Yousif Turaani from the Burj el-Barajneh refugee camp, south of Beirut in Lebanon. We wanted to make his voice heard in the United Nations headquarters in Geneva. Maison de la Paix was a stage for debates, personal stories and our Musical Postcard.

“ am very honored to receive a Musical Postcard from Hussain Turaani and to collaborate with him on this long distance.”

Composer Merlijn Twaalfhoven teamed up with mezzo Soprano Rosanne van Sandwijk to give a musical answer to Hussains rap message. Have a look.
