In 2014, this pioneering collaboration produced a series of songs that explored issues around immigration and life in the IRC.

Musicians Aga Serugo-Lugo and Jack Sharp led the artistic process, taking written lyrics and recordings back and forth between the two groups to produce an uplifting and touching varied selection of new music.

You can listen to the songs on the Hope Stories album here
