The bilingual edition of Amir Issaa’s autobiography book is the result of growing interest in Amir’s work, in particular within academic circles, due to his commitment to reaching younger generations through education and linguistic style.

The volume is accompanied by a soundtrack composed of 20 audio tracks, each dedicated to a chapter of the story, which is already available on Spotify.

This project is a rhyming piece of work, halfway between an album and an audiobook, in which Amir’s narrative voice blends with a carpet of sound, created by talented Loris Mils, which is able to bring the listener into the atmospheres described in the memoir and is already available on Spotify.
