Alafiah … Freedomalafiah2

Voices of Survival, Voices of Welcome(2003)

‘Alafiah…Freedom’ features the voices and compositions of young refugees and their ‘mainstream’ peers singing of trauma, survival, cultural displacement and resilience.

These songs aim to personalise, humanise, and speak to Australians of the lived reality of young people labelled “illegals”, “lifestyle changers” and “unlawful non-citizens”.
They speak of struggle, hope, and the longing for acceptance.

They are a message to the future, and a wake-up call to the present.

“fresh and compelling … exciting and dramatic …impressively unified and emphatic in attack” – Gillian Wells Brisbane Courier Mail

 

“take our comradeship and courage, our thirst for peace – our hopes for all take these fruits bought through our struggles let these same fruits feed us all
take our efforts for survival through the pain that we enduretake these fruits bought through our struggleslet these same fruits feed us all…”
