Watch the Lisapo performance in our two fantastic videos.
Lisapo – The Congolese Tales is a live musical oratory featuring song, spoken word, narration, moving image and community. It tells the powerful story of the Congolese migration to Britain as a result of the destabilisation of their country and consequent civil war.
The event took place at Band on the Wall in June 2014 and was developed and produced by Community Arts North West with community members, artists and a dedicated team of volunteers. The project was funded through the Heritage Lottery Fund, Arts Council England and Manchester City Council.
The performance was filmed by Clive Hunte (Busha Productions) with Bedos Mavambu and Alex Nicolaides and edited by Leah Llewellyn (Memorabeleah)
