The Rhythms Of Migration

In association with

“A swallow awakens in flight from Africa, it’s journey northwards knows no borders.
A green shoot bursts from the ground towards the sky.
A child leaves their home, seeking safer shores.

The rhythms of migration should have no boundaries.
Freedom to roam is nature.
Our humanity, wildlife and biodiversity are undeniably interconnected.

This project searches for compassion, hope and a positive way forward
to cherish this, our beautiful planet Earth.”

 

So read the sleeve notes for The Rhythms of Migration album from Eliza Marshall’s Freedom to Roam – a humanitarian and environmental project that was conceived during a visit to the Outer Hebrides in 2018. Inspired by a desire for universal compassion and respect for nature, and the realisation that we are nature, and that which affects one of us affects all of us. The album traverses themes such as climate change, conflict, restriction, empathy, what it actually means to be displaced with no choice, and has been beautifully crafted as a journey through universal responses to our own and the planet’s most pressing needs.

Freedom to Roam see’s some of the world’s top musicians from England, Wales, Kenya, Senegal, India and Italy join forces to reflect on humanity and nature though music and visuals.

The evening will commence with a screening of a short documentary which highlights the interconnectivity of humanity and nature, followed by inspiring performances from:

Catrin Finch  Harp

Lydia Lowndes-Northcott Viola

Jackie Shave  Violin

Kuljit Bhamra MBE  Tablas

“The wonderful Born Free ethic has resonated deeply within our project, and we wanted to help raise awareness for all that they do to Keep Wildlife in the Wild. Music and film are powerful tools with thought-provoking voices. Through this project our mission is to open ideas and conversation about our interconnected worlds, to encourage hope and aspiration towards a better future for all living things.”
