PJ Harvey and Ramy Essam - The Camp


 This collaboration is beautiful. "I prayed an angel would come, and no angel came," echoes throughout the last few measures, and it only works to solidify how profound and important this music is. The money raised is set to help support displaced children in the Lebanese Bekaa Valley. Help if you can!
