Four compelling tales from four remarkable Black heritage artists, take audiences around the world and across time on a passage of self-discovery. Voyage with us to council house number 11 in England, to Nigeria, to Jamaica, to Ghana, and other worldly realms. Encounter Anansi the Spider, discover self love, immerse yourself in a heart felt family gathering, and hear from ancestors from near and afar.
The stories are familiar, yet never before heard: about family, about food, about love, about history and identity. Showcasing an assortment of lyrical styles and modes of storytelling, this is an experience that will leave you full and changed forever.
