Need: I NEED MUSIC!

Dear sisters, dear friends,

I'm writing to ask you for MUSIC. We are looking to compile music for a video project of women from all around the world. We need help gathering sounds that will bring strength and power to the video. This is why we need music that represents culture, music that takes over your body, and if we can find it, music with lyrics uplifting to women! We welcome all entries - just send me a link, or even better, send me an mp3! You can even record yourself or a group together!

In our video, women from ALL OVER THE WORLD will say one by one, "I AM NOT CUT." We are uniting voices to show to women in cultures where it's a normal practice to remove parts of a girl's genitals or to close her vaginal opening that it DOES NOT HAVE TO HAPPEN! We want to show them that they have sisters in all corners of the earth that support them in changing the social codes so that the cutting will end. This is not an ethical judgement on anyone's cultures or traditions, this is about the health of women and girls! Visit our website to learn more: www.iamnotcut.com

I know in my heart that there is amazing and beautiful music out there that needs to become a part of our video. But it is UP TO YOU to guide me to the right music. I hope you will take my request very seriously. It is so important that the music we use in the background represents WORLD DIVERSITY, beauty and power.

Music truly is the rhythm of the soul,

Thank you, thank you, thank you,

Lili Miller
