Homelands (15)


From the archive

This film was last shown on 20 June 2018

Homelands is the culmination of a year-long project in which four acclaimed British urban musicians returned to their cultural roots, connecting with their homelands to create and produce new music. Mercury Music Prize-nominated Terri Walker travelled to Jamaica, double Mobo winner Shakka visited Dominica, while grime artists Diztortion and Saskilla headed to Suriname and Senegal, respectively.

This ground-breaking documentary produced by Punch Records follows each artist as they travel alone, only accompanied by a small film crew, to explore the roots of their sound and their cultural identity. The result is a fascinating story of cultural genealogy studded with rocking and rousing musical interludes.

*Katy Stewart, PhD Researcher at the School of Languages and Culture at the University of Sheffield, will be joining us on the night to introduce the film.*
