Musical band SUNSAY and WWF-Russia presented the Earth Song

23 november 2018
The band SunSay, WWF Russia, and the production company Diagonal 11 have released The Earth Song video for the first time. The creative project calling for all of us to reflect on the most important thing, the future of our Planet, was the birthday present from the artist to the World Wide Fund for Nature, which is going to celebrate its 25th birthday next year.

The video was shot at a variety of locations in Russia where the World Wide Fund for Nature carries out its projects, including Kamchatka, Karelia, and the Kola Peninsula, on the shore of the Barents Sea.

According to Andrey Zaporozhets, a musician form Ukraine, the author of the song and the founder of the SunSay project, he was so inspired by the beauty of the wild nature and the idea of its preservation that he wrote the song in one day.

Andrey SunSay:

"The Earth Song is a message to anyone anywhere on Earth about people and the nature being a complete whole and about our relationship with the planet. I hope our video will be an inspiration to think and act. Preservation of endangered animal species and forests, waste management, global warming, and disappearance of indigenous cultures — all this concerns people irrespective of the country they live in. Everyone can change the situation, at least to some degree! Let's be more caring about the nature and each other."

The project was initiated by the production company Diagonal 11. The video directed by Valentin Savin and Katerina Lagoda features ordinary people living in Murmansk, who are not professional actors but the artist's fans sharing the project values and mission.

WWF Russia: "The new project by SunSay is an unforgettable journey and a dive into the unique world of infinitely beautiful and inspiring, but at the same time fragile and vulnerable nature. Even the most remote parts of Russia where many of us have never been and will probably never visit are also our home, about which the artist sings so passionately. The Earth Song is a creative project and WWF Russia is happy to be part of it. We are grateful to SunSay and his team for setting to music and conveying in their video the most important things we have been talking about with you for 25 years. And let the Earth Song play for us throughout the next year, the anniversary year for WWF Russia!"
