What if there is a world very similar to ours, with some small differences that make a big impact? A world, which has a safe environment for children to play happily without fear of abuse or abduction. A world where people honour all colours of skin and racism does not exist. A world where diversity is celebrated. A world where nobody is hungry and education is free for all.
IN ANOTHER WORLD is an inspirational single from Gabriel Vargas which explores these themes and holds the potential to make a lasting positive impact on society.
As these unprecedented times leave many questioning current societal systems, “In Another World” offers hope by celebrating the human spirit, embracing our unique differences under the blanket of unity, and leaving behind all of the beliefs and presuppositions that divide it.
With collaborations from multi-Grammy award winning group, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and legendary bass player, Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel), Gabriel Vargas is building connections to inspire change and transform the world.
