Movements by Roots Manuva
via Rebecca Tantony
I was in my late teens when ‘Brand New Second Hand’ came out. I wasn’t a writer then, more falling through words rather than into them. More longing and not sure how to make sense, than sense being made. But I was hungry for language and the desire to understand the human experience through those around me.
The art of expression spoke to the depths. This album, got me in the heart and filled my head with a dizzy sense of something other than what I had known before. It allowed me to dream. To recognise the power of storytelling. It allowed me to move into the possibility of language.
Rebecca Tantony is a writer and facilitator driven to understand the messy and wild human experience in greater depth.
