Second single from the album 'Diaspora', out through Yes Please on November 20.
"Diaspora is made up of questions - it's an open letter to refugees coming to, and currently living in, Australia. The victimisation of asylum seekers by the Australian media and political institutions is a deplorable smudge in an already tainted history of 'tolerance' in our country. I want my people to ensure the pain of leaving what refugees devastatingly left behind is not amplified due to our own reluctance and ignorance, to provide an inclusive supportive community, and to learn from our past mistakes. I hope this song helps, even just a little, in looking forward from here."
Written and recorded by Leigh Hannah.
Mixed by Nick Huggins and mastered by Darren Ziesing.
