Don’t Play The Fool
This song is a product of the Eastern European Academy and three women from different countries joining forces from Poland, Hungary and Estonia and is dedicated to our sisters in Poland fighting against the abortion ban, we are with you!
As Polish women take to the streets to protest a near-total ban on abortion, 50 students of Eastern European Music Academy from 8 countries united in support of their Polish “virtual classmates” to release the single ‘Don’t Play the Fool’ as part of an international compilation.
Eastern European Music Academy united 50 students from the whole region to study and write music together over the last 3 months. This project became much bigger than just another online course, during the Summer, all the Belarus’ students received significant support from their peers. Later, October events inspired three female students from Poland, Hungary and Estonia to join forces fighting against the abortion ban in a creative way and write a girl power manifesto with a strong message.
“Don’t Play the Fool’ is the voice of all Polish women all around the world, so badly discarded by the Polish Government. When I was writing the lyrics, I had the current situation in my mind. I knew I had to write powerful lyrics to encourage people to fight for their rights. People in Poland call it war… and sadly I have to agree. It’s a war. But I’m proud of people marching on the streets. Polish women are changing the history of Poland here and now. They’re gonna fight, and they’re gonna win. That’s why ’’Don’t Play The Fool’ is one of the most important songs I’ve written in my life and it’s dedicated to all the heroes!” — Karo Glazer from Poland, a vocalist, composer and producer of the song.
