70 years on from the HMT Empire Windrush’s arrival in Essex, British/Trinidadian poet, novelist and musician Anthony Joseph celebrates the seismic impact the Caribbean diaspora has had on UK culture. For this concert, Joseph brings together an array of musicians and artists to celebrate the Windrush generation and the triumph of the Caribbean spirit through song and spoken word. At the centre of the show will be a newly commissioned Windrush Suite, composed by Jason Yarde and performed by Joseph alongside a pan-Caribbean ensemble made up of artists drawn from the Jazz, Roots and spoken word scenes here in the UK. Joining Joseph on the night will be feminist icon and Calypso queen Calypso Rose, with more special guests to be announced. In this anniversary year, Joseph has put together a series of events focusing on the positive influence this group of people have had on British multiculturalism, with this concert acting as the centrepiece.
