Music Library

Music reaches out across language barriers. It heals, it makes you cry, and it inspires. We use it to celebrate. We can experience profound sadness and extraordinary joy listening to it. And sometimes we use it to express ourselves.

We welcome submissions of playlists and individual songs by all those affected, including by those who care for us, to show others a little of how we deal with DSD: with a smile, a tear, and lots of hope.
