As music is a very effective media due to the fact it can reach people’s soul it is vital that contents are not trifling or negative as they often are in the late years. On the contrary, lyrics have to be conscious so that they can uplift souls and raise them to a higher level. The mention goes to all minorities that have endured racism by means of isolation and abuse, both in Italy and abroad.
