“Images of suffering brought back to me the suppressed memories of what all of us residents of the area of former Yugoslavia suffered during the 1990s when my own quiet and fairytale childhood ended due to horrors of war.”
Milica Radan and Komnen Vuković are two young singers from Montenegro who, in collaboration with vocal group D-mol, have released an anti-war song devoted to the Ukrainian children currently suffering from Russian invasion of their country.
The lyrics of the song was written by Marijana Kadić Bojanić, while the music was composed by Danijel Alibabić.
“Stop the bombs, bring back our dreams, Our sunflowers, that are scared of the dark. We are the army of the Sun, we are the army of happiness, It’s because of us that the planet of peace revolves.”
The music video, published by Montenegro media company Vijesti, has subtitles in English. Check it out below and share the song’s message all around. Spread the word of peace.
Nathalie, the lead singer of Ukrainian indie rock band Vinok, takes the viewer on an emotional ride in the new lyric video for Elephant Girl. Underneath a hard beat and a groovy rhythm the song’s lyrics tackle the difficulty of being an outcast or being seen different from the rest. Nathalie herself has worked as a mental health professional and therapist and her experience simmers through the song as she shows her support for disabled and alienated people.
The other two members of the trio have backgrounds in journalism and experiences of living in war torn Eastern Ukraine. The band directly fights for women’s rights, disabled rights and all human rights using their music and talents as tools.
“With this song we want to give a voice especially to persons with disabilities and all those who feel like the outcasts of society.”
