Chand Ke Phool [Moon Flowers]

'Chand Ke Phool’, a unique Indian/Andean cumbia song, takes inspiration from the giant-impact hypothesis, which suggests the Earth and Moon were once one planet that was broken in two by a collision with another planet. This is a metaphor for how Pakistan and India were hit by a great conspiracy, and divided on the basis of religion. A similar story exists with Romania, Moldova, Ireland, Yugoslavia... At the core of any conflict, there is a void which, if filled with love, caring and sharing, can bring peace and prosperity.
