A couple of years ago we played the first concert with the Orchestra dei Braccianti (orchestra of the agricultural laborers), an orchestra that unites professional musicians and foreign workers exploited in the Italian countryside. I think for me it was the demonstration of the force of art, in this case of music. The strength to convey a message to the public, to denounce what is happening in southern Italy. The strength to give voice and also professionalism to the artists we found in the southern slums. The strength to all feel part of a world-community and to be all responsible for it.
Here is a small video of what happened that day:
