Covid Chronicles: Playing Kalimba on the Beach

This contribution comes from an undocumented migrant living in the Netherlands.

"Towards the end of the lockdown people visited the beach more often. I took on that particular day my book and a Kalimba along with me. The Kalimba instrument was a gift of my sister to me to cope easier with the isolation in the beginning. While I was reading my book a friend passed by and took that picture of me. Then as time passed the friend suggested a musical clip at the sound of the ocean and the light of the sun."


This material is part of the Covid Chronicles from the Margins project, funded by The Open University and The Hague. The project aims to highlight the impact of the pandemic on refugees, asylum seekers & undocumented migrants.
