Notes on the show

Ms Soli Tii is a vocalist, composer, and producer and creator of the World Women Project. I came across Soli and her project through the Circe: the Black Cut project – an ever-growing circle of inspiration and connection. Launched in September, the World Women Project it is a collection of pieces produced by Soli with the voices of women, her friends from around the world. The work is all dedicated to Soli’s mother, who passed away some years ago, and the track Messages from my mum 1997-1998 is so touching and emotional, it forms the soul of this hour. You can listen to all the tracks and read more at http://worldwomenproject.yolasite.com/music.php

There is so much great work being done with electronic music that comes from a very deep place of tradition and soul – sometimes dubbed folktronic – and the art of the remix is getting richer by the moment. In this show I revel in some of this work coming out of collaborations between India, France, Greece, UK, Colombia, Brazil … starting with any one of the tracks linked above, you can spend all day travelling through the links and connections, on a global aural journey. The internet is, after all, just a physical reflection of the human need to share story, is it not?
