Written over the course of two years by music teacher and composer Rhea Farbman, “The Giant Tent” is based on a poem by poet Isabeth Bakke Hardy. The song is about a little boy who is separated from his parents and detained at the United States border in a giant tent. The music video serves as a rallying cry to reunite children with their parents.

Vocals and video by Michele Farbman, sound engineering and musical direction by Matt Oestreicher.
