Good evening everyone.
It is with great pleasure that we are together today, we commemorate this World Refugee Day.
We would not let this day pass by without telling you that we are thinking of Refugees, yesterday, today and forever.
Today, the refugee situation has become a media subject.
However, thousands of refugees die, cry, are suffering.
It’s hard to believe that for decadesChildren, women and men dying in the Aegean Sea when they try to cross to Europe to seek peace and protection, precisely here at the Moria camp in Lesbos.
We are RAD Music, meaning Refugees African Dance. We offer cultural activities withobjectives to interconnect the different cultures that are in this island, refugees, locals and volunteers, withthe goal to allow you to feel good , or even integrated in Greece, by language, culture and education.
We want to show you that as group of refugees, we are ready to contribute to society, ready to support each other, but also in collaboration with you.
The COVID 19 Pandemic, came and changed our lives of all human beings on this planet. It has changed our works, our daily lives, our relationships, the way we do things, even our reputation. Everything changed.
We have become the same in COVID 19 pandemic.
The virus has entered every country in the world, without permission, it has circulated all over the planet.
It doesn’t choose a race, doesn’t choose borders, color, age, and it choosesevery human being.
Music also puts people on a better footing.
But it, instead of dividing them, brings them together.
Insteadof killing them, it makes them live and sing.
We, RAD Music, choose the musical path, because music does not need papers, does not know borders, does not recognize colors, is not illegal, healsthe sick, builds people.
Music is love.
