2. When was the music composed? Give the closest date possible. Was it during, before, or after the conflict?
3. Did the music escalate the crisis? Was it designed to do that? Did it reach the audience that needed to hear it?
4. What do the lyrics discuss? Who’s side of the conflict does the song side with, if any? Who sings the piece?
