Hotly tipped singer / songwriter Wafia reveals new single “Bodies”. Wafia—who was born in the Netherlands to Syrian and Iraqi parents and is now based in Australia—wrote the track on the day her Syrian family was denied permission to enter Australia amidst the escalating conflict there, while Trump continued to threaten Muslim ban in America.
Speaking on the track Wafia said:
“I wanted to draw similarities between the large groups of Syrian refugees walking miles to safety and those that can protest freely in the western world. I can’t think of anything more human and simple than reminding ourselves that we are fragile bodies but the strength that can come of bodies in large numbers. We live in a world where so many things are difficult and divisive but I wanted this song to be accessible and inclusive because at the end of the day we all want to be a part of something bigger than us and this is the best way I knew how to portray that.”
