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 Peace Palace in the Hague, where the International Court of Justice takes office. This evening was attended by high officials from the Netherlands and abroad and many international graduate studens who will be the decision makers of tomorrow and are working on the sustainable development goals of 2030.
“I 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 musician Amer Shanati to give a musical answer to Hussains rap message. Have a look. The Single Body
