A show about nationality and what happens if you try to run from it, and how we take and hold responsibility for the national story we’re given. A road trip. With songs.

salt. is back out on tour. It’s a deeply powerful piece and Tanuja is mega proud of the sound design on this one. Revisiting the transatlantic slave triangle, it’s a show about grief, ancestry, home, forgetting and colonialism. It’s a show we want everyone to see. Hope you can.

LNK_A
Electro EP
Available to buy for £notmuchatall on Bandcamp

Here’s the first fruits of our recent Sura Medura residency in Hikkaduwa, Sri Lanka: a short album of kinda retro electro tunes made entirely out of field recordings made on the island. Birds? Sure. Bread vans? Yes of course. Monkeys? You BET. Endless honking traffic? Don’t be daft.

Play it loud for your ears and maybe buy a small copy sure why not.
