A folk musician in Romania is on a mission to use her music to power environmental protection. 80-year-old Silvia Dan’s album “Interbeing'' was recorded in the remote Romanian village she calls home. Romanian artist Nico de Transilvania produced the multimedia album as a way to honor the connection between Romanian culture and nature. The ecosystem in Dan’s village has been damaged by deforestation, and the profits from “Interbeing” are being used to plant native trees in the area that are protected by law. Dan has partnered with the nonprofit Forests Without Frontiers to restore the nature that inspired her to pursue folk music at a young age. Listen to the album here!
