Sahba Aminikia was left in the desert to die after an attack by security forces in his home country of Iran. What he learned from walking away alive, as well as moving to the United States in order to continue his education, was that life is precious, and delicate. His mission now is to serve as a bridge between two worlds in this time of division and war. This video shows some of Aminikia's work, layering the voices of Afghan students with the San Francisco Girls Chorus and the string voices of the Kronos Quartet. Aminikia brings sounds from across the ocean not just to have these voices heard, but because they have something to teach us.
