SYNOPSIS
Renowned soprano Measha Brueggergosman performs a unique program of Freedom Songs that have emerged from Africa via the slave trade to America, then to Canada via the United Empire Loyalist migration and the Underground Railroad.

Measha leads us on the journey of her ancestors from Cameroon, Africa to freedom in Maritime Canada, where she lives today.

This journey through time and space is both musical and sociological, personal and historical, intimate and epic – as Measha explores the role of music throughout these turbulent chapters in North American history.
