CD-Project: "Voices of the youth"

Music is a language without borders! From Novgorod to Zwolle and from Bergen to La Rochelle - All young people in the hanseatic cities do listen to music and many of them make music themselves. To force the intercultural exchange we wan to put the self-made music from the youth of different cities and countries together on one CD. But it is not only the music. The CD will contain information about the bands and the cities they come from, too. 


WHO CAN BECOME A PART THE INTERNATIONAL YOUTHHANSA CD 

This project addresses to youth bands which members are at the age of 16 to 25 (it’s the “youthHansa age” since the delegates of the cities have to be at that age too).


WHAT KIND OF SONGS WILL BE ON THE CD 

Every kind of music is welcome! It can be rock, classic, pop, rap or whatever. But two things are really important:

  • The song has to be written by the band themselves.
  • The song has to be in the native language of the country the bands belong to.

It would be really boring if we would have almost only English songs on the CD. But to make sure all listeners can understand what the bands are singing about, we also need the lyrics of the song in the native language and in English.


THE BANDS?

If you have choosen a title you wantet to present on the CD write the lyric in the native language and in English and give us some information about your band and the members and also about your hanseatic city (maybe you can contact your local youthhansa memeber or your city, too).


WHAT WILL BE THE TITLE OF THE CD

“Voices of the Youth” will be the title of our CD. The Delegated from the hanseatic cities voted for this name at the last youthHansa Deligation Meeting in Lippstadt in May 2007.


WHEN WILL THE CD BE FINISHED

As soon as we have collected enough songs and by now  we still need a few more, so take part!
The official presentation will be at our meeting in Salzwedel in 2008.
