                     “Let the light in” -  Out Dec. 1.

The Global Bangladesh Band Chirkutt and artist Marte Wulff (NO) release song for solidarity in dark times.

In a collaboration that transcends borders and cultures, norwegian artist and climate activist Marte Wulff teams up with renowned bangladeshi band Chirkutt to release a powerful anthem entitled "Let The Light In".

 

Marte Wulff, recognized not only for her voice and songwriting, but also for her dedication towards environmentalism, found common ground with Chirkutt through a joint commitment to climate and social consciousness with music as the point of focus.

 

The collaboration aims to raise awareness of the urgent climate change-issues and the need for global solidarity and justice.

 

Bringing together artists from different corners of the world, "Let The Light In" is more than just a song; it is a call to action, a reminder of our shared responsibility to work for peace and protect our planet and all its inhabitants, both now and in the future.

 

The lyrics address the impact of the destructive forces that drive both war, climate change and inequality, and call upon the listener to act and to be responsible stewards of the planet and all its inhabitants.

 

The music is a mixture of Norwegian and Bangladeshi musical elements, which symbolizes coming together across cultures for a common cause.

With hopes of a brighter future: "Let The Light In" is out Dec. 1.

Let The Light In  (Lyrics: M. Wulff & Sharmin Sultana Sumi)

 

Buildings coming down

shaken by the sound

Even in our sleep, we cry

Children flood the town

Looking for a moral crown

Even in our dreams we lie

 

Some say fighting is the only way to get out out of the dark

But we know salvations buried in the ruins of our heart 

just let the light in

 

Power is the game, stories full of shame

Every time we tried, we failed

But life flows from the ground

Children flood the town

When we are awake, we dream 

 

Some say fighting is the only way to get out out of the dark

But we know salvations buried in the ruins of our heart 

just let the light in

 

Some say fighting is the only way to get out of the dark

Don't they know freedom is always waiting safely in our hearts

Some say violence is the only language our kind understands

Don't they know we hold compassion in our hearts and in our hands

 

Just let the light in
