Give Chance a Piece – songs about war

A Boy and a Makeshift Toy from the series Children of Conflict (2015)
Inspired by the work of American Pulitzer-nominated war photographer Chris
Hondros, who captured images of children in wars around the world,
the Children of Conflict series is a collection of sonic portraits based off of
Hondros’ intimately revealing photography with hopes to continue the
storytelling and dialogue of his work prompts.
A Boy and a Makeshift Toy is a portrait of a young boy playing in an
abandoned train station, full of Albanian reugees, waiting to be taken to
another camp. During an 11-week bombing campaign in 1999, Serbians
displaced more than 800,000 Albanians out of Kosovo.
