The first in an occasional series on Moroccan art for 2021. Abdelillah Ouahbi from the Arfoud Brothers talks about his music and his oasis town in the beautiful Sahara desert, Erfoud. His fusion sounds produced with his brothers and sisters draw on his hometown, stories from the past, the everyday and the natural world - water, sky, the desert and the slippery fierce rhythms of Sahrawi music. With musical tracks celebrating our lives together and apart before and during the pandemic.
Irreplaceable, the Fight to Save our Wild Places is Julian Hoffman's new book. He talks about the urgent resistance to loss and the local yet international struggle to save and value nature in our lives. From a small wood north of Sheffield to a small fishing island in Indonesia he brings us voices of hope and dissent that appreciate and wish to preserve the small enormous diversity of our planet for our wildlife and for ourselves.
