about

​​"The work endures as an act of solidarity; evidence that creative possibilities can be endless, even when trapped and in despair"
SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

"Set Me Free" is an album collaboration between 9 years detained Arab Ahwazi refugee poet-artist Jalal Mahamede and Australian Art Music Award finalist Keyna Wilkins, working via zoom from his detention cell, with 19 special guest musicians. It is a musical setting of 12 of his spoken poems around themes of justice and freedom. Jalal was never charged or tried, but was indefinitely detained for arriving in Australia and seeking protection, a victim of Australia's brutal mandatory detention. He was released into Brisbane community Dec 2021, two weeks after the album launch.
