Anthony Joseph is a poet, novelist, musician and lecturer described as ‘the leader of the black avant-garde in Britain’. His written work and performance occupies a space between surrealism, Jazz and the rhythms of Caribbean speech and music.

Guadeloupian percussionist Roger Raspail leads a band that draws from sources across the Caribbean along with Afrobeat, modern jazz and jazz-rock fusion.
