12/11/19-Latin Vox Machine: Sharing Music as a Way to Show Gratitude

Updated: Jul 31

This week I want to share an article I found that is set in Argentina where many Venezuelan refugees are seeking asylum. What I love about this piece is that, although it is set in a different country with a completely different crisis, music is still used to bring together the people in the different communities there. It follows an orchestra that performs for large crowds of incredibly receptive Argentinians and is largely made up of Venezuelan refugees who trained as classical musicians before they were forced to flee. The performances are used as a way to encourage unity between both groups of people and allow the refugees to connect with others who are in the same situation as them. While this orchestra works in a slightly different way than HeartBEATS, it still holds the same idea: music brings people together.
