In July 2014, women detained in Yarl's Wood IRC collaborated with students at Biddenham Upper School to write a series of songs that explored issues around immigration and life in the IRC. Musicians Aga Serugo-Lugo and Jack Sharp led the process, taking lyrics and recordings back and forth between the two groups, producing a fantastic, touching, and incredibly varied selection of music. The results are captured on this album.
The sessions often included questions from either group that the artists would take to their next workshop, creating an ongoing dialogue. Based on questions from Biddenham to Yarl's Wood in the first workshop, this song set out to introduce the two groups with the questions What's Your Name?, What's your favourite colour?, Where are you from?.
Based on music composed by the students at Biddenham, they describe a typical morning in their lives. The detainees responded by singing about their own morning routines both before and during their detainment at Yarl's Wood.
Due to the nature of the workshops at Yarl's Wood, attendee numbers fluctuated during the sessions. In this instance there was only one attendee for a while, and with Aga's help she write this short piece of music inspired by the thunderstorm we had had the night before.
