The Migration

After so long, I stop pretending to be somebody else, and decided I should build my own solid, unique yet professional composition. I stop trying to be like TSFH or generic trailer stuff.

Since I'm lack of Persian instrument (supposed to get Koron but got Nocturnal Cello) and Chinese instrument (I can't get the lust sound from Ethno World's erhu). The cello and viola represented erhu and poorly represented kamancheh, while the mandolin tremolo represented pipa ensemble.

The instruments and their representations are to show that there is no gap or border between cultures.

The track was inspired by Ai Weiwei's Human Flow, an art documentary about global refugee crisis.

As an ex-refugee myself, I was in many people's shoes. Would you help a fellow refugee, or not, because of his or her skin colour, background, religion or the xenophobia in you won over your soul?

You said, it's your lands. Where's your right to claim it?

I happened to be a very special refugee, my mother side was 1/2 Cree, meaning I had every right to stay on this land. That's my privilege. But remember that the Anishinaabe opened arm to the Europeans first came to Turtle Island, then my ancestors were massacred for 500 years and lands taken.

You don't hear much about the Anishinaabe complain about so-called America or Canada with refugees coming here right? It only came from the European settlers here. Same shit in UK, you don't hear Irish, Scottish or Welsh complain much about it, such complains only came from the Brits.

When the hosts stop complaining about guests who in need coming to their houses, the rich occupiers inside the host's house should shut the fuck up.

---

But let's stop complaining about who and who, the point of this track is to educate you the listeners about the refugee crisis.

There is no refugee crisis but humanity crisis.
