Phoenix Winter sings in German in Vancouver Downtown Eastside (DTES)

Hendrik Beune and April Smith of AHA MEDIA hear Phoenix Winter sing in German.

Hendrik says:

We are very blessed to have Phoenix Winter as a ‘natural community member’ of the DTES. She used to live here and still spends so much time here, we could never consider her to not be a part of our community!

Phoenix is a performer and an activist and a very good friend! Phoenix is of mixed German and Goan descent and learned this lullaby from her mother when she was a child, just as it had been handed down through generations.

Phoenix performed this song spontaneously when I mentioned my intention to bring something new from the DTES to Vienna, for a visit and presentation that is coming up in June.

We thank Phoenix for being the kind spirit that she is and are grateful for all the talent and caring people that we meet here on a daily basis!
