More about the project:
Mr. Klaje, based in Cali, Colombia is a group of musicians and educators which provide musical-educational projects to young people immersed in violent contexts.
La Verdad is the product of a collaborative research project “¿Cuál es la verdad?” between academics, artists and educators in El Choco, Colombia working with underserved young people. Many of these young people are Afro-descendants and from indigenous populations…they have been forcibly displaced through violence and armed conflict to find alternative futures through arts and music collaborations.
The original version of La Verdad was produced by Mr. Klaje in Spanish and has been extended to include an interwoven English version from World Heart Beat musicians.
