The 'Freedom Song' of this brave woman, who has finally been released after 15 years.
Such words of wisdom in here...and she speaks about the power that musicians and artists have to spread powerful messages, far faster than speeches, far further, to far more....
Aung San Suu Kyi from a couple of years back on the power of musicians/artists
And yes, this IS a music link, because here is a highly intelligent woman talking about a subject so very dear to my heart...and that is the POWER of music...
May many of the musicians in Mudcat hear these words and act upon them, because you all have that power to change the world for the better....
And those who are NOT musicians, but 'mere members of the audience' realise the power that you too have, in helping musicians get their songs out there, right around the world, in this age of the internet...
Use your power too...

Yes, indeed, Lizzie. Thank you for this. I have frequently thought that, if ever I were asked in a survey or interview or any such, to name whom I regard as the greatest person in the world, I should unhesitatingly reply, "Aug San Suu Kyi."
