An open jazz space of stories and internal landscapes where an audience is sitting within the worlds of Afrofuturism, fragmented texts and ghosts of the past and present -without apology and justification we dare you to sink into the waves … This performance meets blackness, meets ritual, meets memory, meets future. NBTS has created The Nubian Collective – inspired by the musical and intellectual spiritual discourse from the African diaspora from the 1940s-1970s. Artists from across genres meet through their expression of the arts – poetry, literature, music, movements and rituals, creating connection and history for a community celebrating our heritage through the arts.
