Check out Aphty’s new video below.
Aphty Khéa has returned from deep space to self-release some fresh material. And not only is it really, really good – it’s in aid of a self-run squat project that she has volunteered her time with in Athens called Refugee Accommodation and Solidarity Space City Plaza. This ethereal, dream-like tune has that same trippy vibe from her previous work and features some of the kids’ vocals from her volunteer music class. I hope that more artists eventually get on board projects like these. The world needs more music as much as it needs more love.
City Plaza is a self-organized housing project for homeless refugees in the centre of Athens accommodating 400 people, among them 180 children. It is entirely run on voluntary effort and is based on principles of self-organization and autonomy, without any paid staff or public funding. It does not receive any funding from governments or NGOs, and depends entirely on the political support and practical solidarity from within Greece and abroad.
It costs the project €1 per day to cover the basic needs of a single refugee.
