The Ukrainian band TVORCHI recorded a track that consists of the sounds of quarantine. The band members called on the Ukrainians to stay home.
The video appeared on the official Facebook page of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine. In it, the musicians open and close windows, turn on and off the water, and even use buckwheat, the favorite cereal of Ukrainians, to produce sounds for the track. “Stay home, stay safe, don’t get infected!”
Ukraine is not the only country trying to appeal to its citizens through the persuasive power of music. Bobi Wine, a Ugandan politician and rapper, has recorded a track called “Corona Virus Alert.” The song has a catchy tune, calming vibes, and an inspiring message “Everybody is a potential solution.” The video is spreading like fire through social media.
