Lyrics&music: Johanna Lindgren

“Här är mitt hem” (This is My Home) is based on two interviews with Muhammad Habo Issa, who came to Pajala from Syria on 22 December 2014; his experience of coming to this small community in darkest December, finding a feeling of hopefulness, calm, security, the clean and clear air and that he has in fact “come home”; his longing for his wife and children and his hopes that they will find life enjoyable in Pajala.

The dark does not frighten, the light leads the way. “It ́s dark and it ́s paradise”. “Roots are not the thing”

As one of five partners in the Interreg project Our Stories along the Northern Lights Route, the group JORD has been behind this music production.

Tittel: Här är mitt hem

”Här är mitt hem” är baserad på två intervjuer med Muhammad Habo Issa som kom till Pajala från Syrien den 22 december 2014. Hans upplevelse att mitt i mörkaste december komma till denna lilla plats, hitta en känsla av hoppfullhet, lugnet, tryggheten, den rena och klara luften och det faktum att han faktiskt “hittat hem”. Hans längtan efter frun och barnen och önskan att de ska komma att trivas i Pajala.

Mörkret skrämmer ej, ljuset leder. “It ́s dark and it ́s paradise”. “Roots are not the thing”

Gruppen JORD har som en av fem parter i Interreg Nord projektet Our Stories along the Northern Lights Route stått bakom denna musikproduktion.
