The Magic of Gris-Gris

The Magic of Gris-Gris

They call you wild – and when I first laid my eyes upon you, I was awestruck. Your energy was something else altogether. I imagined falling free off the edge of your cliff and into the thrashing water below; imagining how I would become entangled in your waves;...

Naomi Oni’s Acid Attack Story – My Thoughts

Grace Victory: No Filter – My Thoughts

Grace Victory: No Filter – My Thoughts

I’m not gonna lie. Now living in Mauritius, one of the things I miss most about England is Amazon Prime and their next day delivery service. That being said, I guess I have to be grateful that I was still able to get a copy of Grace Victory’s No Filter from the UK out to this tiny speck of an island in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

Seema Jaya Sharma: Forever ‘Alive’

Seema Jaya Sharma: Forever ‘Alive’

Sarabjit Parmar: Writing Books, Climbing Mountains

In Conversation with Aisha Allee

In Conversation with Aisha Allee

As an artist and as a writer, I find inspiration in everything: from the way a leaf may fall from a tree in the midst of the Autumn months; from the way the sun may hit the ocean waves and glint ever-so-spectacularly; to the way a child may hold out his hand to...

21st Century Noah’s Ark

21st Century Noah’s Ark

Today I watched the movie Noah. It’s a very rare occurrence that I ever get to watch a movie in peace anymore; what, with a 1 year old that doesn’t sleep very well and hasn’t slept very well since he was born. But these are the joys of motherhood: sacrificing your own...

Oh Daughter! What a Debut…

Oh Daughter! What a Debut…

You know that feeling when you hear a piece of music and it just, hits? Well that’s exactly what happened when sitting in a car in an underground car park, I came across this next band on BBC Introducing with Zane Lowe. Daughter, a once solo now three-piece Indie Folk...

Trippin’ With Tobin: An Out-Of-This-World Experience!

Trippin’ With Tobin: An Out-Of-This-World Experience!

Amon Tobin's ISAM 2.0 While the highs of taking drugs can be extraordinary, they say the coming down is the worst bit. But how about if you could feel that same high, that same buzz, that same sense of electricity tingling through the air and your body without the...
