A few days ago, I met with Trinidadian poet and writer Anthony Joseph in a coffee shop in Brixton. It was a pleasure to listen to Anthony’s stories of growing up in Trinidad, the music of calypso and soca, and what the Windrush generation means to London’s identity.

Anthony also talks us through a track from his latest album People of the Sun, talks of his book tours and speaks about his upcoming Windrush celebration gala at the Barbican Centre on Saturday 17th November part of the EFG London Jazz Festival 2018.

Who would have thought that mixing roles, letting musicians wear the clothes of journalists, would have been so stimulating…

In view of their upcoming double-bill show (at Rich Mix London on Friday 23rd November), organized by Arts Canteen and part of the 2018 edition of the EFG London Jazz Festival, we had the pleasure to host Amira Kheir and Yara Lapidus (who reached us over the phone from Paris) at the SOAS Radio studio.

We were meant to have a conventional chat with the artists about their music, influences and career, but then we thought, why don’t we let them do our job and interview each other? The outcome is an interesting and expansive conversation between two engaging persons even before being talented musicians.
