Throwing Voices: Imam Baksh, Heir of the Cursed & Roseanne Watt
Wed 21 Aug 15:45 - 17:15
A Caribbean-Scots Musical Conversation
Throwing Voices is a unique collaborative project looking at how local language, culture and tradition can resonate across linguistic divides. Using selected objects and words, Guyanese writer Imam Baksh and Shetlandic poet, filmmaker and musician Roseanne Watt share new music, verse, songs and discussion. The authors have worked with acclaimed Glasgow-based Kenyan musician Heir of the Cursed (aka Beldina Odenyo Onassis) to create a boundary-crossing performance exploring the similarities and differences between Caribbean and Shetlandic cultures.
