Song for Empathy - a special project with refugee musicians from Syria

Together with singer/writer Patrick Verheij I have been working on a special musical project incorporating Syrian musicians coming to Amsterdam as refugees. It has been a very special experience working together, talking and listening to their stories and I’m very honored and proud to show the result to you.

The song is a call for mutual understanding and respect and an attempt to encourage the dialog in times of separation and fear.

“The same color blod runs through our veins.”

If you like the song please share it with your friends. You can help us create more projects by downloding the song on iTunes. ‘Song for Empathy’ is also available on Spotify, CDBaby and BandCamp.
