Ever wondered where your favourite music comes from?
Homelands is the culmination of a year-long project in which four acclaimed British urban musicians returned to their cultural roots, connecting with their homelands to create and produce new music.
The artists featured are: acclaimed grime MC Saskilla (Senegal); RnB Mercury prize nominee Terri Walker (Jamaica); GRM award winning producer Diztortion (Suriname); and RnB MOBO winner singer Shakka (Dominica).
This groundbreaking documentary produced by Punch Records follows each artist as they travel alone, only accompanied by a small film crew, to explore the roots of their sound and their cultural identity. The result is a fascinating story of cultural genealogy studded with rocking and rousing musical interludes.
Following our premiere events at BFI Southbank as part of the Future Film Festival and Flatpack Film Festival, the full feature length documentary will be available on the BFI Player:
