Investigating new sounds within folk songs and applying elements of contemporary classical music, free improvisation, and electronic music (using our own experiences as improvisers, composers and sound artists) into them as a way of framing their narrative within the broader context of the migratory world. Guided by emotionality and freedom, new and old structures arise within a thread of a simultaneously personal and cultural narrative.
