ALKEBULAN TO ASTRALASIA

ALKEBULAN TO ASTRALASIA

(GUEST MIX WIRESHAKER)

A tale bookended by two different types of vessel: slave-ship and space ship; removal and escape.

In between, songs of captivity and resistance; exile and return; remembrance and infection; hell on earth and heaven in mind….

Inspired by four wise men: the writer Ishmael Reed (who hypothesised that African slaves brought with them a cultural virus -he called it Jes’ Grew- transmitted via music that caused white people to sing and dance and be happy in the same ways as black folk), and the Ark-i-techs Sun Ra, Lee Perry  and George Clinton; as well as the Afro Futurism film essay The Last Angel Of History (link below)
