You sense Didier has the kind of unbridled optimism in human nature that catches hold and creates movements.

Refugee Week World Music and Arts festival – highlights

Thursday
Didier Kisala

Live at Centrala
7.30pm

I wish I’d had an uncle who could sing like Didier Kisala. He could have sung me anything, words about slugs or silver fish, shopping for carrots, the Anglican priesthood, it would all have sent me to creamy sleeps when he babysat. I didn’t. But you do. Born to sing, with an undefeated heart. You sense Didier has the kind of unbridled optimism in human nature that catches hold and creates movements.


Didier Kisala presents a new song commissioned by Celebrating Sanctuary for Refugee Week 2021 responding to this year's theme, We Cannot Walk Alone.


Refugee Week is a UK-wide festival celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees and people seeking sanctuary. Founded in 1998 and held every year around World Refugee Day on the 20 June, Refugee Week is also a growing global movement.

HELP OUTSIDELEFT

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]

WRITE FOR OUTSIDELEFT

If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
