"Put simply, the music of this dynamic
ensemble appeals to both the deeply
personal and wider universal concerns.
The music of Freetown Collective, as
evidenced by its critically acclaimed debut
album “Born in Darkness”, is not only
catchy and relatable, but it also helps us
to navigate what it means to be human."
