In the song “Ana Lama” (Arabic for “I am Lama”), they unravel the experience of the young Saudi girl, Lama al-Ghamdi who was sexually abused and then killed by her father, a prominent Islamic religious preacher. Bianca sang, “I thought the father was the protector was the creator but you are none. Although my bones you may have shattered. It doesn’t matter, ‘cause I am whole.”

In a way, it was a eulogy. Their recollection of an innocent child’s tragic death served as a requiem of Lama’s resilient soul. It was heartbreaking to hear a narration of this young girl’s tragic death, but honoring her youthful soul was humbling.
