  • World Greatest Drummer - Tony Allen

    Where the rhythmic patterns of Yoruba meet instrumental funk, with lyrics shot through with the rhetoric of the Black Panthers and theories of Pan–‐Africanism, this revolutionary new style saw Kuti hailed as the “Black President” of Afrobeat. His position was upheld by the supple yet precise rhythms of Allen’s human metronome for over fifteen years before their paths diverged.

  • "You called and We Came" - Remembering African Caribbean Nurses in the NHS

    You called…and we came.

    In ships bigger than anything we had seen,

    dwarfing our islands and covering them

    in the shadows of smoke and noise.

    Crowded, excited voices filled the air,

    traveling to the ‘motherland’

    – over weeks, over oceans that threatened to engulf us.

    Driven by a wish, a call to save, to rebuild

    and support efforts to establish ‘health for all’

    in the aftermath of war.
