Music from War Zones (#1232)

Ukraine isn’t the only conflict area in today’s world. The depressingly long list also includes Cameroon, Columbia, Iraq, Nigeria, Tanzania, Myanmar, Burkina Faso, Algeria, and others. (See this list of ongoing armed conflicts.) But in many places, people are still living, working, making music, falling in love, having kids. This music is a reminder of those people, with the hope that we can move beyond violence as a way of settling differences.
