Music Television is very pleased to present a long time favorite artist of MusicTelevision.Com and The Indies Network, Gaby Moreno, with her music associates Shara Nova & Cantus Domus and their passionate and uniquely produced & delivered song titled TRY: Tratar de Transformar. The video was animated and directed by Tim Fite. 

The artists stated the following about the production:

"TRY / Tratar de Transformar" is a musical piece that combines the ambient vocals of Cantus Domus, an SATB choir from Germany, with the soaring voices of Gaby Moreno, a Grammy winning Guatemalan singer-songwriter, and Shara Nova (My Brightest Diamond), an American multi-instrumentalist and the piece's composer. The song is a response to families separated from each other and being held in detention centers at the US border. The visual accompaniment, a sketch-based animation by artist Tim Fite, heightens the emotional impact of the piece. The illustrations of families grappling with an overbearing police state present a chilling and accessible message of strength in community amid societal terrors.

Composer Shara Nova shares the origins of the work. “Cantus Domus reached out to me as a composer for their online concert series during quarantine and asked if I had any choral music on the subject of the prison system. I had composed a song for choir ‘Tratar de Transformar’ in 2019 when I first began to hear about children being detained and separated from their families or even lost at the border of the US. I was asking myself how can I sit comfortably in my chair while this is happening? The words of this song are the mission statement of many churches, and a Guatemalan church made me first aware of this text. I wanted to put these words into song, so that they might become my own mission statement, words for me to live up to and with which to align my purpose. I felt since that was the origin of the text, I wanted to honor that origin and so I asked my friend Gaby Moreno to be the guest vocalist, and with her powerful contribution the story and meaning of the words becomes even more poignant.

The choir recorded all of their lines individually on their phones, computers, by any means necessary while they were staying inside - we all created the recording remotely, with Gaby and drummer Sebastian Aymanns in Los Angeles, the choir and drummer Earl Harvin based in Berlin and artist Tim Fite in New York City.”

The goal of this work is to bring awareness to the issue by making it more accessible/easier to understand. We also want to raise money for the communities impacted. This will involve a partnership with KIND (Kids In Need of Defense).
