Mercury-nominated and Worldwide FM Lifetime Achievement Award winner Carleen Anderson takes to the Barbican stage to present Cage Street Memorial. Described by Anderson as a “tribal opera”, poetry and songs chronicle over a century of Anderson’s own family heritage, reflecting on multi-culturalism and the celebration of perseverance against the odds.Original songs composed and arranged by Anderson drawn from jazz and soul, gospel and chamber music are enhanced by a backdrop of evocative visual images with Carleen on voice, piano and digital harmonizer complemented by an expert cquartet led by the critically acclaimed multi-instrumentalist Orphy Robinson.
