As an extension of the international Babylon Festival—which is a collaboration between four countries: Brazil, South Africa, the UK and the United States —Sarah Elizabeth Charles & SCOPE perform music from their most recent release “Free of Form” (the very first release on Christian Scott’s Stretch Music Label) as well as new material that will be debuted for the upcoming release of SCOPE’s fourth album. All the music performed will center around Sarah and her band SCOPE’s continuous efforts throughout their ten years together to utilize the bandstand as a space in which freedoms can be expressed and commonality, justice and empathy can be communicated. Music is borderless and this set of material will reflect the emotional and creative permeability of this art form.
