"In Our Hands" is dedicated to the innocent children that have been killed, injured or displaced by the armed conflicts in Syria since 2011. Drawing from the melodic and harmonic sounds of Brian Blade and the Fellowship Band, Wolfgang Muthspiel and Zach Brock, the music represents a desire to see all human beings learn to take care of the world and each other, regardless of their background, race, religion, gender and beliefs. It's music about love and humanity.

Featured track "Omran" is inspired by Omran Daqneesh and many other children's heartbreaking stories.

"Omran" consists of 4 sections:
1. Sun, Playground, Laughter
2. Overcast
3. Storm, Air Raid, Ambulance
4. Hope

The first section represents their lives before the war started, and perhaps the talents and gifts that these children were born with. In "Overcast", everything was interrupted by the uprising and the civil war. The children had no choice but to leave the playgrounds that they love in order to run for their lives. The third section "Storm, Air Raid, Ambulance" attempts to portray the sound of airstrikes and ambulances that have swept through the whole country of Syria as well as the pain of losing loved ones. The final section represents hope, that violence will be stopped and the precious children in the world would be protected and nurtured.

More about Omran Daqneesh:
Omran is a Syrian boy who was filmed by Aleppo Media Centre and gained international media coverage after he was injured by an airstrike, sitting in the back of an ambulance waiting to be treated. Fortunately, Omran was able to make it out alive and reunite with his parents while many other children would have been dead before the rescue team arrived.

100% of the album sales will be donated to UNICEF, the Syria Crisis Appeal. Click the link below if you would like to find out more.
