Dive into the mind of brilliant poet Anthony Joseph, who shares his artistry with Jazz à la Villette audiences here in 2021. Born in Port of Spain, and with a doctorate in Creative Writing from Goldsmiths College, Joseph has always explored topics central to our societies, such as race relations and politics. Let Joseph and his band tell the story of the modern world through their frenetic and controlled playing and passion!
Anthony Joseph has a special story that originates from his African and Caribbean roots. This heritage indeed marks his writing and the subjects that challenge him, subjects on which he puts his incredibly captivating pen. This has led to his being named by Arts Council England and Renaissance One as one of fifty artists of African and/or Asian descent to have made a major contribution to contemporary British literature.
