About the Album

Refugee is Maya's seventh release, a heartfelt trilingual song about the hardships and struggles of being a refugee. "... to think that Texas, the state where I live, is ground zero of the humanity crisis involving the immigrant families in the USA! I felt compelled to write this song, to create something out of my own distress, and to raise awareness with art and music, to touch people's hearts. The verses are in Portuguese with a couple of Spanish words. The chorus is in English. I also decided, with the support of Yellow House Records, to donate 50% of all Refugee sales before covered costs to Casa Marinella, a wonderful organization in Austin which provides shelter, food and full supportive services to homeless immigrants."
