A poet in conversation.
Hannah discusses her second collection of poetry published by Bloodaxe, her Chinese-Jamaican father and his milieu between the 1950s and the 1970s. Chan is the nickname of one of the many nicknames of her Chinese-Jamaican father, borrowed from the Polish émigré card magician Chan Canasta. It is also a name from China, where her grandfather’s story begins. Plus a live composition celebrating the work of Charles Mingus.
