This project resulted in the album artwork for a single by Somalian born artist, K’Naan. The song “Wavin’ Flag,” now made famous as the official 2010 World Cup theme song, describes overcoming unspeakable trauma K’Naan faced in the Somali Civil War as a child before escaping to America at 13 years old.
