“Dar um Jeito (We Will Find A Way)” is the brainchild of Arnon Woolfson and Pournouri who began work on the track with Wyclef, Yacoub and Falk earlier this year. Pournouri says, “In Portuguese Dar Um Jeito means to find a way around obstacles and impossibilities. With this track, we wanted to send a message of optimism and opportunity with the music and the words.”
Once the track idea was created, Santana, Pires and Avicii each added their own sound to the recording. An international cast of some of the greatest musicians in the world went into the recording; continues Pournouri, “We wanted to create the biggest track in the world for the biggest event in the world.”
