The Puerto Rican group Calle 13 have released a music video for the brand new song called "Multi_Viral" featuring Julian Assange (of WikiLeaks), Tom Morello (of Rage Against The Machine), and Palestinian singer Kamilya Jubran. Watch above.
Shot in two Palestinian cities, Bethlehem and Belt Sahour, the video depicts children living in a war zone. We see artistic expression of spray painting and rocking out on guitars, amidst the violence and chaos of the area. At one point, the children turn a machine gun into a guitar, which is reminiscent of Pedro Reyes' recent art project turning weapons into musical instruments.
While Tom Morello is seen rocking out in the video during his guitar solo, Julian Assange was only able to lend his voice to the recording.
