The Song „Small Talk“

In August 2018, we started a Fairtrade videoproject with the Fairtrade-Town Gröbenzell / Germany. For this Project, Tonio Geugelin and MONKÉ wrote the Song „Small Talk“.

„Small Talk“

Verse 1 It ain’t fair when you work hard Don’t get enough bucks toiling From the morning till the dark You gotta spend your money smart Send it to the right place You gotta listen to your heart Verse 2 Seriously, do you know What you get When you go To the mall Do you really think that you’re smart? Do you actually know what’s going on behind closed doors don’t treat them wrong I think you don’t But there’s a chance that you do When you don’t have a clue Listen up to the truth Do you actually know what’s going on behind closed doors don’t treat them wrong

Chorus You have the power to change the world So that every boy and girl can smile You see the world and realize Your decisions bring the light we need Verse 3 Every day I wake up Just living my life in a loop But I gotta wake up I gotta wake up My first reaction was Hmm..what?? I didn’t know that But then I realized We live a life full of lies Everything comes at a price Even rice Do you actually know what’s going on behind closed doors don’t treat them wrong Do you actually know what’s going on behind closed doors don’t treat them wrong Chorus (repeated)

Artists for global fairness and fairtrade

We are three young artists from Arnhem / The Netherlands. Music, dance and film are our medium to express emotions as empathy, solidarity and humanity. With this project we want to support the idea of Fair Trade and therefore make our contribution towards fairer solutions and equity. Our project partners are the Fairtrade Town Gröbenzell and Agenda 21 Fürstenfeldbruck (Germany). Our goal: From 01.April 2018 – 31.December 2019 we want to publish as many „Small Talk“ performances on our website as possible. Our vision: An international network of people, who love music and dance and take a stand for a fair and solidary togetherness.
