Storytellers are a threat. They threaten all champions of control, they frighten usurpers of the right-to-freedom of the human spirit — in state, in church or mosque, in party congress, in the university or whereverCHINUA ACHEBE – ANTHILLS OF THE SAVANNAH
Thank you for joining me on the virtuous interweb of thoughts. In my journey to being a story teller I walk with jazz to reconnect with my beginnings. A genre evolving out of the sorrows of slavery and predating the slave ships on the African plains. The roots sink deep through generations and interconnects with the spirit. She tells a story without words and she is understood, I hope I can do the same in art and word.
My writing process begins with a thought or something I’ve noticed while I’m out and about and I often try and piece together a story or create a narrative which inspires me to write. I’m also a photographer at Surafi Creative and work part time at an NGO in London. At times I do create music so that might make an appearance too. Have fun and enjoy the pieces of Surafi KB on Beneath The Canvas.
