Five and a feather
Five and a feather

Le 3 octobre 2013, une embarcation transportant environ 500 migrants africains fait naufrage près de Lampedusa, île italienne proche de la Sicile. La catastrophe fait 366 morts, ce qui la classe au deuxième rang des plus grandes tragédies en Méditerranée depuis le début du XXIe siècle.
Fortement marquée par cet évènement, constamment rappelé avec les innombrables catastrophes en mer arrivées par la suite, Awa Ly a écrit cette chanson en réaction, de colère, d’appel au secours, d’appel aux dirigeants.
What will you do
when you will be in the middle of de sea
it worth the pain
to gamble your life and maybe wait in vain
for an answer from those who don't know you
for an answer from those who don't want you
to come here
here here
to come here

What will you say
when you will have to throw your friend away
under the waves
another soul losts without a pray
A mother prays for her elder son
a brother wishing to be next one
to come here
here here
to come here
here here
to come here
here here
to come here


It's not a crime flee from war and poverty
It's not a crime looking for joy and liberty
I know I know I know
it seems easy
But where, where is your Humanity
we need it here
here here
we need it here
here here
we need it here
here here
we need it here
...

What will you do
when you will be in the middle of de sea
What will you do
when you will be in the middle of de sea
What will you do
when you will be in the middle of de sea

Une experience musicale et linguistique autour de la chanson HERE de Awa Ly & Faada Freddy

Fin septembre 2016 Awa Ly sortait le clip du titre « HERE » en duo avec Faada Freddy. Ce titre est un hommage aux migrants victimes des naufrages en mer Mediterranee. Accompagnee d’un magnifique clip tourne au Senegal, la chanson a fait echo chez plusieurs artistes qui ont ete invites à faire leur propre version dans leur langue d’origine. Venus d’univers musicaux et de pays differents, ils posent tour a tour leurs voix pour huit versions originales venues des quatre coins du monde (Tunisie, Benin, Bresil, Argentine, Guadeloupe, Italie et Croatie).

A musical and linguistic experience around the song HERE by Awa Ly & Faada Freddy. At the end of September 2016, Awa Ly released the song’s « HERE » video in duet with Faada Freddy. This song is a tribute to the migrants who are victims of shipwrecks in the Mediterranean Sea. Accompanied by a beautiful video shot in Senegal, the song echoed several artists who were invited to make their own version in their original language. Coming from different musical styles and countries (Tunisia, Benin, Brazil, Argentina, Guadeloupe, Italy and Croatia), each one of them sang their own original version of « Here ».
