Our song "Behind The Lies" is a beautifully complex human rights' song written from the teen perspective. "Behind The Lies" starts off innocently, then the lyrics and music grow darker, like the lives of so many girls worldwide, and then the song swells with hope that we can improve the lives of girls globally. We sing "Behind The Lies" to stop FGM. Please listen, buy this song and help us to support effective programs to stop FGM. We'd love your feedback too.
After learning about Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) on-line from World Health Organization, we decided to write and record “Behind The Lies”. Our original song is being released in sync with the International Day on Zero Tolerance to Female Genital Mutilation. “We hope our song permeates the hearts and minds of community leaders and parents world wide considering FGM for their daughters. When we heard about FGM we realized that as young females we could easily be 3 of the 6000 candidates undergoing dangerous genital cutting each day. We want to help at-risk girls immediately avoid FGM.” -- Sixteen year-old songwriter Lauriel Harte Marger of The Bonde
*Net proceeds from this single support effective outreach and educational programs to abolish Female Genital Mutilation.
