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

29th October 2020

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

Song of Freedom music video

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

The original track, ‘Song of Freedom’ was part of a recording project between 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 that produced the song here.

You can watch their previous music video to the song 'Silence is a Killer' here.

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