Reuben Lewis & Huda Fadlelmawla (Brisbane) – LP launch

Sun 19 May @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

$20 – $30
Reuben Lewis and Huda Fadlelmawla

Together Huda and Reuben meld words and sounds into new configurations, neither poem nor music, but something else. – Des Cowley

Award winning Naarm based musician Reuben Lewis and legendary Meeanjin based spoken word poet Huda Fadlelmawla combine forces in their debut LP,Story of Another Soul. Known as ‘Huda the Goddess’ on stage, Huda Fadlelmawla delivers powerful spoken word poetry about equality, her journey as a Sudanese refugee and women’s rights. Through trumpet alongside live processing with pedals and laptop Reuben Lewis devises an ever expanding and “vivid listening experience that gleams with sinister detail” (The Wire). There is a vast, monolithic intensity to this collaboration. It plays on expectations, shattering all semblance of familiar form, story and symbol. We are instead evoked to create a new narrative, one that is just between us the listener, the poet and the sound world.

Premiered at the Brisbane Jazz Festival in October, this is a unique creative exchange not to be missed!

The album was supported by the Australian Music Centre’s Momentum Commission

Story of Another Soulis an irresistible and unforgettable album for its irrefutable honesty. – Tariro Mavondo
