A music video featuring world music personalities has been launched as part of the EU Children for Peace initiative, which funds humanitarian projects for children growing up in conflict regions.
The song Rêver ("Dreaming") was composed especially for the project by Senegalese star musician Wasis Diop, who also sings in the video and by Olivier Delevingne, co-author & music artistic producer. Other renowned performers include Joseph from Chico & the Gypsies, Chris Mayne, composer and percussionist Steve Shehan, violinist Anne Gavroin and the chorus Les Voisins du dessus. The choreography was especially created for the song by Reya de la Vega.
This video is the teaser of the first video clip of the song.
As part of the initiative, the EU provided children benefitting from the EU Children of Peace initiative the opportunity to get involved in, perform and film a choreographed song and dance based on an original melody, while adding their own cultural touch. The children's take on the song will be integrated into the video and this new version will be released to the media on the International Day of Peace, 21 September.
