Eliza Marshall’s Freedom To Roam brings a beautifully crafted journey in new music, film and visual art to The Met this May.

The award-winning album The Rhythms Of Migration from acclaimed composers Catrin Finch, Jackie Shave, Donal Rogers and Eliza Marshall, featuring Kuljit Bhamra MBE and Robert Irvine, is played in its entirety, accompanied by stunning visual artwork from Amelia Kosminksy. The music is preceded by our short film Connected, from multi-award winning director Nicholas Jones.

“An engagingly immersive, occasionally joyous, cross pollination of African, Celtic and Indian folk and classical styles, traversing themes from climate change to conflict, empathy to displacement. Lovingly crafted and alive with motion, Marshall and company should be applauded for having created a collection so inspirational and thought-provoking from the base materials of our madness”. Songlines

Music and film are powerful tools with thought-provoking voices. Freedom To Roam’s mission is to open ideas and conversation about our interconnected worlds, and to encourage feelings of hope, empowerment and aspiration towards a better future for all living things.

“A totally mesmeric hour-long aural experience of transcendent quality. A drink from this global watering hole will leave you enriched, enlightened and, hopefully, a more altruistic, compassionate being.” Folk Radio UK
