Dear sisters, dear friends,
I'm writing to ask you for music... I'm working on a compilation of music from different cultures all around the world. I loved reading Enie's comment about all the different styles in Cameroon. Enie, if you read this, I do hope you will send us a link to the music that you feel best represents your culture. However, I'm particularly interested in women singers who sing with power and strength! Or musicians whose music makes you feel free!
The music is being compiled for a video project I'm working on. In the video, women from all over the world will say one by one, "I am not cut." The reason we want to do this is to show people in cultures where it is still a normal practice to remove parts of a girls' genitals or to close her vaginal opening that THIS DOES NOT HAVE TO HAPPEN! We want to show them that their sisters all over the world support them in changing the social codes that support this dangerous practice. This is not an ethical judgement, this is about the health of girls and women!
I know in my heart that there is amazing and beautiful music out there that needs to become a part of our video. But it is UP TO YOU to guide me to the right music. I hope you will take my request very seriously. It is so important that the music we use in the background represents WORLD DIVERSITY, beauty and power.
Music truly is the rhythm of the soul,
Thank you, thank you, thank you,
