Music Composition Workshop - MIXED EMOTIONS


This is a song that was the result of a 9 week workshop De conducted with a group young people aged 14-17yrs, all considered to be 'youth at risk'...


The song is very touching, and very indicative of their lives...


The young people work shopped the song structure and with assistance from De, wrote the song and then De recorded it in her studio.
