Homelands

Four acclaimed British urban musicians - Terri Walker, Shakka, Diztortion and Saskilla - return to their cultural roots, making new music inspired by their homelands along the way.

Documentary 2017 72 mins

Overview

Homelands is the culmination of a year-long project in which four acclaimed British urban musicians returned to their cultural roots, connecting with their homelands to create and produce new music. Mercury Music Prize-nominated Terri Walker travelled to Jamaica, double Mobo winner Shakka visited Dominica, while grime artists Diztortion and Saskilla headed to Suriname and Senegal, respectively.

This groundbreaking documentary produced by Punch Records follows each artist as they travel alone, only accompanied by a small film crew, to explore the roots of their sound and their cultural identity. The result is a fascinating story of cultural genealogy studded with rocking and rousing musical interludes.
