Sacred Ground

Una bellissima canzone - armonizzata “a cappella”, nello stile delle Sweet Honey in the Rock - che ci parla di “accoglienza”, “protezione”, “asilo”, “rifugio” per coloro che fuggono da guerre, persecuzioni e fame, tutti termini che volutamente ho messo tra virgolette perchè, stando alle immagini che in queste ore arrivano da Ventimiglia, dal Brennero, dal Sempione, dalle stazioni di Roma e Milano, mi pare che siano ormai parole di cui abbiamo perso il significato e l’uso...
