In bad times, the way forward is reinvention. What happens when two musicians can no longer do live shows? they played at the biggest festivals and concert halls and then, like so many others, they were captivated by the sound of silence. To avoid becoming victims to the pandemic, they reinvented themselves: Kyakuwa was born
One Meter Fifty is a song about how the pandemic affected everyone worldwide. It is a call to unite, to stand strong together in the face of a collective setback, to look for opportunities and it is a call for hope. When everyone join forces, it will be easier to look into Pandora’s box with courage.
