Sada means echo (صدى) in Arabic: The echo of our consciousness, actions, and dreams. Lyrics of Sada is a project that connects refugee musicians in Athens, Greece, to collaborate with musicians in the Bay Area. The creative journey and cultural exchange will be documented as they compose original music led by voices of refugees and supported by local Bay Area talent. The goal of this humanitarian program is to compile a music album and a documentary telling a larger story of migration, displacement and the pursuit of dreams to raise awareness.
