A Sea-drift of Songs
Visual Artist for A Sea-drift of Songs - September 2020
A Sea-drift of Songs is a reconstruction of the sound- and visual scapes of the AfroAsian worlds of the 13th century, as gathered by the Re-centring AfroAsia Project. It is an effort to reconstruct the laments and joys, the rhythms and plausible melodies of that time. It is also made up of stories – the stories of women in servitude who made up most of the musicality of that time. They are searching for ways back home when the brilliant city of Baghdad was torched by Mongolian-led forces in 1258. The magical world of the AfroAsian seas is reconstructed by travelogues of fabulist captains and seafarers. It is a world of gigantic birds that lift elephants sky high to drop them to their death, of gigantic crabs that fly – it is also a world of trade, of ambergris and ivory, of gold and silk, of giraffes and pearls…and of slaves. We are delighted to have an array of soloists from at least 7 vantage points of the known world: from Mapungubwe to Al Andalus and from Muziris to the Habeshi Highlands.
