Bob Marley sang ... “when music hits you, you feel no pain”. The Caribbean has a new timeless musical sound, musical medicine, for our generation, coming from Freetown Collective in Trinidad and Tobago which resonates with the greats that came before. In this episode, we speak to Muhammad Muwakil, lead singer of Freetown Collective. The motto of Freetown Collective is ‘till everywhere is free’ and Muhammad is not afraid to tell the story of our times and encourage imagination, hope, love and justice through the poetry of music in his own very unique and authentic way. Freetown Collective launched its first studio album Born in Darkness to critical acclaim in 2018. Their beautiful second studio album YAGO was released in 2020. He also starred in the 2013 film God Loves the Fighter. For the show, Muhammad brings his guitar along to grace us with two beautiful songs to start and end the show called Amen and Osun. Enjoy!
