Behind the Music

I want to convey a mixture of sadness, due to these hard facts of reality written in the book and, conversely, demonstrate a hopeful glimpse for raising awareness on these issues in the future. That’s why the chapter “Adelaide’s Voyage” touches me the most. I simply wasn't aware that an organization like Women on Waves existed and, most importantly, I did not understand the need for an organization like this. It's unbelievable to me that there are still so many countries where women are not able to have full sovereignty over their bodies. Nonetheless, I'm grateful that people and organizations like these try to make a change.

The Journalism behind the Music

All music in this project is based on The Outlaw Ocean, a New York Times Best-Selling book by Ian Urbina that chronicles lawlessness at sea around the world. This reporting touches on a diversity of abuses ranging from illegal and overfishing, arms trafficking at sea, human slavery, gun running, intentional dumping, murder of stowaways, thievery of ships and other topics.
