A hopeful message form the Netherlands

The Netherlands has a new anthem for empowerment and diversity! It’s the beautiful hopeful song ‘Yu no man broko mi’ written and performed by Jeangu Macrooy at Eurovision Song Contest 2021!

“It’s inspired by the movements where people make it clear that they’ve kept their mouths shut long enough,” Jeangu said. “Whether it’s about Black Lives Matter or the LGBT community, we deserve to be here and we deserve respect.”

“Skin as rich as the starlit night
Your rhythm is rebellion, your rhythm is rebellion
Deep currents running in the rivers of your eyes
Your rhythm is rebellion, your rhythm is rebellion
They spat on your crown and they poisoned your ground
Your rhythm is rebellion, your rhythm is rebellion
They burned your heroes at the stake
But your voice will echo all their names
This ain’t the end, no
It’s the birth of a new age
Yu no man broko mi”
