Deathscapes

Far from home

Deathscapes

The moon shines brightly in a dark sky. A tree protrudes from the bottom of the frame.

‘Far from home‘ is a song sung in a traditional Kurdish style about being far from home and surrounded by no one. It is a haunting tribute to the endurance of the human spirit whilst being detained on Manus Island.

It was made via mobile phone and internet between Manus Island and Narrm, Melbourne in 2018.

By: Farhad Bandesh (vocals, field recordings, concept) and Anna Liebzeit (music, production, mixing, vocals)
