ZIndgi Sakhta [Life is hard]

This song was written on 20 March 2017 with residents at the asylum center and visitor Artur Bianchini from Italy. It is a shorter song, which I think could be expanded upon with a little more work. There is room for musical instruments to solo as well, particularly as the song has a kind of jazzy, blues feel to it.

The song is a chanting of the Dari phrase Zindgi Sakhta, which means Life if hard.

Zindgi Sakhta zindgi sakhta

Nobody can take my destiny from me

Zindgi Sakhta zindgi sakhta

Life is hard
