Trimfest Tongue Tied and Twisted

Trimfest Tongue Tied and Twisted

GemArts is delighted to bring Tongue Tied and Twisted to Trimfest 2016.
Tongue Tied & Twisted blasts Indian storytelling into the 21st century, combining the talents of UK music producer PKCtheFirst on stage with international performer Peter Chand.
"How many of the sisters will the wild jackals spare…what becomes of the foolish man who thought he was dead…..and what is the haunting message that a dove sings across time and space…"
Experience two distinctive artists bringing a fresh UK twist on traditional tales collected from South Asian elders. This show celebrates the art of live storytelling fusing a unique blend of Urban Hip Hop and classical South Asian sounds. Together, they present a unique audience experience across cultures for both young and old.
"Peter transports the listener into his world with remarkable energy and great expression... His cheeky smile, wry humour, and rich voice are a winning combination... I was spellbound".
Kim Normanton, BBC Radio 4
