Residente Raises Awareness of Middle East War in New Clip ‘Guerra’

Residente, also known as René Pérez Joglar, unveiled his new audiovisual “Guerra” on Friday morning (Aug. 18), which touches on the humanity issues with the war in the Middle East.

The clip, Residente’s third self-directed video, was filmed in Spain and on-site at the Zahle refugee camp — an informal camp on the Syrian/Lebanese border — home to over 250 refugees fleeing the war in Syria.

“People suffer first hand from the attacks and the abuse, there are those who fight and resist the attack and those refugees who escape from war,” Residente said in a press release. “Meanwhile, we sit by comfortably in our homes, totally unaware of the true harshness of war.”

“Guerra” is part of his solo album debut Residente, released earlier this year. See the video below:

The Grammy-winning singer/songwriter is now touring in the U.S., performing in Washington, DC on Aug. 19 and will continue in Santa Ana, CA (Aug. 22), San Francisco, CA (Aug. 24), San Diego, CA (Aug. 27), Tucson, AZ (Aug. 28, Dallas, Tx (Aug. 30) and Miami, FL (Aug. 31).
