How we met:
Liam was introduced to us through a mutual friend, and agreed to collaborate with us while we were in filming in Dublin. We went to his house and followed him into his backyard where he built a small fire. Together we discussed the power of music to unite the planet, and added his vocal and didgeridoo to “Biko.”
