Inspiring a Swedish pop song…

Our talks have inspired a great many people, and really made a difference in places. This is an impact with a difference!

At the end of the summer the Swedish band Hi-Lili Hi-Lo released their EP debut “Birds”. Their single “Seven Words” features a collaboration between the band and “Fighting with non-violence”, the TEDxExeter 2012 talk by Scilla Elworthy:

Hi-Lili Hi-Lo Seven WordsComposer and leader of the band Mikel Morueta Holme got inspired by the talk and incorporated parts of it on the demo-version to accentuate the message of the song. The song is about prejudices and conflict while Scilla’s words serve as an inspiration to find solutions. Originally, the single was composed as an assessment work on Mikel’s music studies in Brazil in 2014. Once he returned to Sweden the band decided to record the final version. The band is proud to present the result of the collaboration with Scilla Elworthy, her team and TEDxExeter.

The debut-EP “Birds” is the outcome of acoustic and electronic paths where challenging strings arrangements, carved melodies and intense passages lead to a common ground.

“Seven Words” and the whole EP are available through Spotify, iTunes, and Bandcamp.
