TAJ was a monument that had to be built and was built on grief and obsession … But in building it, I realised that we were the monument that our parents built and they built us with love and stories. We represent them and are their lasting real impression on this world. We are their legacy and we are their champions…we will make them proud.
It’s 8am on the morning of the launch. I just woke up … I feel a calm that I didn’t feel before. I feel our ancestors with me.
ANANSI is a work that is being done to remind us of where we came from and the power of our history. The power of our process and the power of who we are.
ANANSI has been quietly weaving his web around me and the stories of our LOST TRIBE for years and has now tied us all together in a beautiful tapestry that shows our past five years and welcomes our next.
Our stories have alway been connected and each year will always be part of a bigger story that is being written. One day we will look back and read a story that we were a part of and smile as if we are seeing it for the first time.
The LOST TRIBE is the story-telling band and I’m proud and humbled to see its story unfold.
