In just 21 hours, Smock Media created the below rapid-response video for the Human Rights Foundation (HRF) announcing Venezuelan violinist activist Wuilly Arteaga’s attendance at the Oslo Freedom Forum in New York.

Venezuelan dissident violinist Wuilly Arteaga has been at the center of the protests rocking the country. Tune in to watch him perform at the upcoming Oslo Freedom Forum in New York on September 19 at our livestream on oslofreedomforum.com.

Wuilly performed twice at the Oslo Freedom Forum in New York.  See the video below to see Wuilly performing on stage and give a touching speech (14:00 mark).  Wuilly received not one, but TWO standing ovations for his speech and performance.  Well deserved.  Later that night at the reception, Wuilly played in a duet with Gabi Holzwarth, the ‘Violinist of Silicon Valley’.

Listening to Wuilly Arteaga live inspires all of us who value music over oppression.
