Songwriting with Guest Artist Sierra Casady of CocoRosie

Sierra Casady of CocoRosie stopped by our classroom to lead a songwriting workshop! 
She graciously took an afternoon off from touring and flew in from Norway to compose a song with our children. 
Sierra asked for our students' favorite words in their native languages, and together we wrote a song in Russian, Kurdish, Arabic, and Farsi. 
She taught us the melody to a beautiful harp accompaniment. 
The Red Cross classroom space was not available, so we converted the women's locker room into a makeshift recording studio. 
Videos of our new song coming soon.
Special thank you to guest photographer Oliver Wolfe for the pictures!
