Brouhaha 2021 with Kani Kamil and Sherko Abbas

Sherko Abbas revisits his When the Wild Instruments Sing performances with fellow Iraqi artist Kani Kamil.

Featuring newly-built handmade instruments, Brouhaha reflects social agitation and displacement, through works focused on noise, sound and the matter of listening, by two Iraqi artists living in the diaspora.

Each artist will play an unconventional instrument made by themselves, responding to the idea of a brouhaha as a key question about the current political agenda of the world, which became a real threat to their life.

Originally developed as part of Horizons Festival and presented in association with CAN (Community Arts North West).
