Jarrett Martineau, charismatic host of ‘Reclaimed’ on CBC curates a galaxy of potent voices from around the world with his customary eclectic, finger-on-the-pulse vision. Be prepared for an unforgettable night celebrating the power of the lyric in literature and music, moving from haunting hybrids of word and song, to ecstatic percussion-driven ballads.
What does an interweaving of South Asian, Indigenous, Black, and Queer stories of love and resistance look like? What myths have we inherited that give rise to new imaginings of liberation? Confluence unfolds the stories we have always told, continue to tell, and those we have yet to speak into being, in the fight to envision new worlds.
