Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Hoping you've been having a great summer.
I'm currently on tour as MD with the incredible Voices of the Revolution.

In Place Of War presents Voices of the Revolution
Wednesday 31st August | 20:00 - 22:00
This year In Place Of War have brought together an inspirational all-female line up of 15 musicians, rappers, multi-instrumentalists & singers from around the world - Ghana, Brazil, Zimbabwe, Colombia, Bangladesh, Rwanda, Venezuela, Egypt and the UK to share, collaborate, create and perform under the musical direction of the UK’s first black female composer for the Proms, Errollyn Wallen.
From women reclaiming the djembe in Rwanda to an Egyptian accordionist to a Brazilian favela-based dancehall artist to Zimbabwe’s rap queen - Voices Of The Revolution will be a spectacular new piece of work. This is your chance to catch it before it tours to Festival No.6 and Hull Freedom Festival.
I have been collaborating with New YVC UNITE to create a new song, MESSAGE, to be performed by mass choirs next year at the Southbank
ANON, my chamber opera, commissioned by Welsh National Opera, will be performed by Peabody Chamber Opera in February
