Event Details

70 years on from the HMT Empire Windrush’s arrival in Essex and arguably the beginning of British multiculturalism, British/Trinidadian poet, novelist, and musician Anthony Joseph brings together an array of musicians and artists to celebrate the triumph of the Caribbean spirit with a series of events exploring the cultural history of the Caribbean diaspora in the United Kingdom.

The month-long series of film, music and literature events culminates in this gala concert, which will include the debut of a newly commissioned Windrush Suite by saxophonist & composer Jason Yarde, performed by Anthony and a pan-Caribbean ensemble comprising a who’s who of the British jazz, Caribbean music, and spoken word scenes – including legendary calypso artists Calypso Rose, Mighty Sparrow, rhythm poet Brother Resistance, award-winning vocalist Cleveland Watkiss, and Warp Records’ new signing GAIKA.
