Polish-Chechen Compositions as an Integration Method
“Radio eR“, a regional radio station in Poland, has reported that a new Polish-Chechen musical project was formed and will end soon.
According to the information, Polish and Chechen artists are working together to prepare common compositions under the project title “Together – The Volunteer Model for the Integration of Refugees” (Razem – model wolontariatu na rzecz integracji uchodźców). The Project involves the dissemination of proven methods of integration using media tools such as methodical films, video, and radio. These tools are directly served to promote the culture of refugees among local residents. The compositions in their entirety will be ready in mid-May and released as an album. The project is run jointly by the Lublin Volunteer Center (Centrum Wolontariatu w Lublinie) and Radio eR, and it is funded by the European Refugee Fund and the Polish state budget.
“A duet by Mariusz Migałki from Lublin, Poland and Zaira from Chechnya will show a new perspective on the integration of refugees from the Russian occupied Chechen Republic of Ichkeria. Now, we present you with excerpts from the prior trial recordings of a Polish-Chechen composition,” said Janek Wnuk, the President of the Lublin Volunteer Center during a radio program. He also noted that their project has its own radio show. Each week on Tuesdays, they present their broadcasts, “Because I was a stranger… (Bo Byłem Przybyszem…)”, devoted to the integration of refugees in Lublin and entire Poland.
