Abstract:
Since moving to Newcastle in 2009 to pursue our masters in music and art, Yilis del Carmen Suriel and myself noticed that there was a lack of cultural events designed and aimed to engage and highlight the diverse music and culture of the African and Caribbean Diaspora. We also noticed that there were a lot of local bands and musicians who performed and composed music from this community but did not share the same stage, perform together, or were even aware of each other’s existence. As musicians who love to collaborate and engage in musical activities we began creating concerts around our band, Hannabiell & Midnight Blue, and our duet, Ladies of Midnight Blue, aimed at bringing people from diverse backgrounds together. Our unique talent and skill is the ability to excite, enthuse, and create a collaborative force. We work in partnership with many other organizations and individuals, because we believe that partnerships result in stronger projects and direct action. All of our work is done through collaborative work, which is based around utilizing the resources, and strengths that already exist within the community and how we can identify them, honor them, and channel them to create new and innovative programing. The contents of this portfolio highlight and provide evidence of the longstanding rich program of events and activities that we have created and taken part of. It documents the process and ongoing development of my research in community building, audience development, networking and collaborating. It is organized chronologically from our most resent, Harambee Pasadia 2016, to some of our earliest, Roots Rhythms Double Bill in 2011.
