Singer-songwriter Bishi combines music, technology and moving image in this spectacular one-woman show.
This performance coincides with the release of Bishi's new single and video 'Look The Other Way', written in collaboration with and featuring the ‘Obi Wan Kenobi’ of UK politic Tony Benn. https://youtu.be/z-gDGrvTnvM
Albion Voice, created in partnership with her long term collaborator Matthew Harden, features songs from the album of the same name. Throughout the performance, visuals are projected over and around her to form an environment of ever-shifting lines and perspectives.
A deeply personal quest for belonging, Albion Voice explores themes of national identity, cultural confusion and social estrangement. Written in English, Bengali, Bulgarian and Biblical Greek, the album reflects the Babylonian nature of London and all world cities today.
It features everything from English folk song, throat singing and the experimental work of Meredith Monk to Christian choral music and traditional Indian song.
