Young people give new lease of life to track 'Song of Freedom'

29th October 2020

Young people from youth media organisation Mouth That Roars have made the second in a series of music videos to songs originally recorded in UK immigration detention centres. This visuals were created in September 2020 to accompany a track called ‘Song of Freedom’.

Song of Freedom music video

The young people took part in workshops with experienced film-makers and Lamin Joof, an artist we met when he was in detention who is now a Music In Detention trustee. The young people selected the track, and devised and made the video.

The track, ‘Song of Freedom’ was part of a recording project with staff and detainees at Harmondsworth Immigration Removal Centre, and was delivered in partnership with Music for Change. You can find out more about the original project here.

This was our second music video project with Mouth That Roars. You can watch their first video 'Silence is a Killer' here.

This project was funded by D'Oyly Carte Charitable Trust.
