The album evolved out of asylum seekers in Brisbane coming together to sing - finding and sharing their 'common ground' - their brokenness, their resilience, their frustrations and their hopes for the future. Songs were written and performed. Friends of the Refugee Claimants Support Centre contributed their songs as well and the CD was launched in late 2000.
One of the songs "Labarik Sira Hotu" has become well known in East Timor as the song used by the United Nations in their advertisements to encourage people to vote in the August 2001 elections. Afonso Corte Real, a Timorese Australian, was nominated for a Sunnie Award for this song.
