'Souls Of Ancient Fish: Hieroglyphs' Comes to Alexander Upstairs

Fusing poetry, world music, electro-acoustic soundscapes and jazz, Souls of Ancient Fish offers a mystical journey that's hypnotic, haunting and sublime. A collaboration between the poet Ruben Mowszowski, traditional music artist and cultural historian Dizu Plaatjies and soprano saxophonist and electronic musician Maxim Starcke, it forms a lush current, a confluence of leaping vocabularies that celebrate the fluid and rich possibilities of words and sounds.

"Tempered by love and loss and infused with the musicality of the oral tradition and ritual, the group's incantations are a poetic and spiritual atlas of new imaginative territories" - Mail & Guardian
