Though the 'refugee debate' in Australia is often filled with fear and even racism, there are so many great initiatives out there from people who are passionate about seeing justice and finding hope partnering with refugees and asylum seekers. One I have just come across is an Australian music initiative called Key of the Sea, combining the talents of great aussie artists with people from migrant and refugee backgrounds. The music combines heaps of different styles and beats, with amazing musicians who have 'brought their cultural heritage from across the sea, escaping war, hardship or persecution'. There are two albums- both available on itunes. Profits go to supporting refugee and asylum seeker projects in Australia. Get on board!
My favourite track so far is 'Silence of the Gun' by Jinja Safari and Kinfe Geshu on Volume 2.
