Some of Us: Episode 1 - Tiyeni Tiyeni

Playing tracks by

Oliver Mtukudzi, Makhirikhiri Metsametsano and Don Jazzy.

Some of Us is an ongoing project exploring my fragmented relationship with Zambia. Returning ‘home’ for the first time in 8 years forced me to reevaluate the issues surrounding the duality of identity.

All ears, but missing my tongue, I took photographs, made fragmented notes and compiled field recordings on my iPhone. The cacophony of Soweto market followed me back to my grandparents’ house and soon, the familiarity of people, sounds and rituals flooded back, each of them gaining new meaning.
