New York City, USA – Valley Entertainment has released a US
version of the celebrated album Lullabies from the Axil of Evil, created
by Norwegian producer Erk Hillestead.
Norwegian producer Erik Hillestad was struck by President George W. Bush’s January 29, 2002 speech wherein he launched the now famous term “The Axis of Evil”. He declared that Iran, Iraq, North Korea “and their allies” were enemies of the United States and the free democratic world. These countries were labeled enemies. Hillestad felt the stigma that was attached to the countries pointed out as members of “The Axis of Evil” was just one side of it. As a result, decided to unite “East” and “West” through song…through lullabies. “Lullabies lead us to the deepest and most fundamental way of communication between human beings. It is where all sharing
of ideas and feelings starts. Between mother and child, between father and
child. It is a universal culture. “- Erik Hillestad.
