Since the days of wandering troubadours, music has always been an art form that needs to move in order to be heard. Music moves as people move, voluntarily or by force. It moves in other ways too – moving hearts and minds, and has the power to inspire and even to incite. It is central to our struggles, both personal and political.
A weekend of music, talks and films, And It Moves – Music & Songs from an Open Road will examine migration in music through the years – exploring the power of music to move us and to move with us.
