The melody rises. The drums kick in. Suddenly you’re no longer on the dancefloor, or in your kitchen, or on the bus. You’re transported somewhere else.
The role of displaced artists in shaping the history of music is far greater than most of us realise (Schoenberg and Freddie Mercury, anyone?) So this Refugee Week, we’re creating a special playlist of tracks that are by artists from refugee backgrounds, or inspired by experiences of people on the move.
We hope that through the power of beautiful music, you might go somewhere you’ve never been before.
Put it on. Turn it up. Share it with a friend. Feel the beat.
