Breaking silences: musician Chloe Flower

Classical pianist Chloe Flower is aware that the gruesome problem of human trafficking and sexual slavery isn’t exactly easy to just bring up in a conversation. So she’s hoping her music will do the talking. With the help of legendary producer Babyface, she has married classical music and hip-hop in a song called “Revolution.” A friend of slave trade survivor Somaly Mam, Flower is donating all of her proceeds to the Somaly Mam Foundation. In filmmaker Dalton Gaudin’s interview with her, she talks about her music and about the SMF, and sits down to play a bit at the piano as well.
