We are excited to host The Spirit of Marronage in Caribbean Sonorities, a conversation featuring Adama Keïta and Jade Bassien-Capsa next Thursday 2 November, from 7-9PM at 56 Conduit Street.

The conversation will focus on connections between the Caribbean islands and the spirit of marronage - encompassing both the physical and psychological escape from slavery and the philosophical quest for freedom and emancipation. The conversation will delve into how the spiritual aspects of marronage have influenced music genres such as Zouk, Gwo ka, and Bèlè but also its significance in relation to wider cultural identity. Following the conversation, Adama and Jade will lead an intergenerational workshop focused on creating mind maps related to the discussed topic.

In collaboration with ICA Bookstore, a selection of books related to the subject from their collection will also be on display during this event to provide further resources of enrichment.
