Not All Songs are Sung

Musicians without Borders is inspired by Halimeh- an influential young woman previously trained by Musicians without Borders. She is now teaching children with special needs. We recently viewed this video of a sweet girl with Down syndrome performing the song taught to her by Halimeh. What is so exceptional about this song? Well, this song is not sung- it’s signed!  Halimeh is deaf. She learned this song at the Musicians without Borders training, and created lyrics in Palestinian Sign Language.

Lyrics:

بتمشي بترقات

بوسط السيرات

احمر اخضر اصفر

    بتمشي سيارات

Translation of Lyrics:

We walk through the street
Surrounded by cars
Red, yellow, green
Cars start driving

Check out and share this video as an empowering representation of music for all and outstanding leadership!
