The Southall Story at the South Bank – Spirit Level
Wednesday 7 April 2010 – Tuesday 11 May 2010

The Southall Story created by Shakila Maan, Kuljit Bhamra and Ammy Phull with Cathy Woolley and Michael McMillan is finally coming together.

Southall is re-created with a sense of a ‘Time Tunnel’ where we go back to the 1950’s and explore an extraordinary history, both cultural and political.

Southall is a town that has welcomed new communities throughout the last century, enabling them to excel and influence both the social and political structures of Britain.

Sounds of Southall

| January 2nd, 2010 | 3 Comments »

Planning to wander the streets of Southall with my hand held Zoom sound recording device!

I imagine that people visiting this site will probably want to hear some of the sounds that we locals are more than familiar with: Broadway traffic, bustling shops, bhangra music from CD shops, Gurudwara loudspeakers, Masjid crowds, Mandirs etc.

Anyone have any ideas about what else I could record?
