Butterflies - a song from Daria Kulesh's debut solo album Eternal Child - is a charity single for DEBRA, the national charity that supports individuals and families living with Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), a rare condition that makes skin as fragile as a butterfly's wing. The single is available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc. The track was produced by Lauren Deakin-Davies and is backed by Folkstock Arts Foundation. Daria launched the song on May 24 2014 at Harpenden Public Halls, in a support slot to the folk legend Dave Swarbrick, sadly missed.
