    Clash Of Civilizations - Refugees


    Refugees - The song "Refugees" is dedicated to the plight of millions of refugees across the world and their irrefutable human right to be able to return home.


    For centuries, a harmful myth has been perpetuated that we live in a divided world, that there are fundamental differences between races, cultures, and civilizations, and that this divide can only be bridged by military, economic, or cultural domination. The Clash of Civilizations collective represents one effort to challenge this myth by illustrating the common musical bonds found within all cultures.

    This is an electronic music project created by two friends, Boston-based composers and music producers Milan Kovacev and Nikola Radan. The goal of the collective is to create unity and harmony by clashing various music from around the world: traditional voices, historic samples and melodies, (some dating back hundreds of years), and original native instruments.

    These separate pieces are seamlessly melded together to create something entirely new and harmonious, something that as a whole is more powerful and moving than its separate parts.

    Clash of Civilizations project involves creative musicians and performers from USA, Iran, Israel, Turkey, Cyprus, France, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Albania and Serbia, all currently based in Boston and New York.
