Traffic – Chinese Bamboo EP
The trafficking of people, particularly children is a lucrative and prolific trade today. The mere stats alone do not resonate enough motivation for calls to action, so I wrote this song.
The song “Traffic” has impacted the world in a positive way. It inspired an event titled “Moving Traffic” – an interactive event using the arts to help and to heal survivors of human trafficking, held on June 12th, 2014. The event raised $5700 for The Mahima Home, a holistic center for minors who have been trafficked in Kolkata, India. #MovingTraffic featured performances by Musicians from Canada and The US, high calibre dance and spoken word. The event itself was also publicly endorsed by Mayor Pat Perkins. To see photos from the event go here http://durhamschoolofballetandcontemporarydance.com/photo-gallery/moving-traffic-event-2014/
