Greetings - on a very sunny and crisp London Saturday in February as I tread water and catch UP!!
Firstly Radio runnings - I promised info for the amazing tracks I played at Kinsi Abdulleh of Numbi Arts request to illustrate their crucial event on February 25th at RichMix in Bethnal Green London. The simplest thing is to give you direct links:
I was speaking to Kinsi Abdulleh about Numbi Arts and there Being Here Sense of Place heritage research programme delving into the long history of Somali's in the East End of London - especially in the dock areas - which goes back to the 18th Century and includes several books written by Somalis about their lives in the 19th Century. Several local people are being trained in research and oral history gathering skills. A celebration of Part 1 takes place at Rich Mix Bethnal Green on Sunday February 25th in the afternoon with poetry, music, sharings and an exhibition as well as food. See Numbi Arts for more!
