On the power of music in darker times. With Musicians without Borders, Sounds of Palestine, Muziek aan bed
After the Kosovo War, peace activist and choral director Laura Hassler founded Musicians Without Borders, dedicated to help heal the scars left behind by the war through music. Cellist Fabienne van Eck has been working for Musicians without Borders and Sounds of Palestine in the Palestinian refugee camp Ayda as a musical community worker and cello teacher for many years, and cellist Tjakina Oosting visits terminally ill people in hospitals to bring music to them. How do these people experience music? Johan Dorrestein talks to them about these experiences.
