Denys Baptiste & Lemn Sissay discuss ‘Now Is the Time’

Our roving Lively Up! Festival photographer tuned into a conversation between saxophonist/composer, Denys Baptiste and poet/author, Lemn Sissay as they discussed Denys’ new work ‘NOW IS THE TIME’ for which Lemn has contributed his poetry.

Says Lemn:

‘We have to search through our past for inspiration that can take us through the traumas of the present’.

‘[Martin Luther King] is our hero, and he’s a hero to everybody’.

What do you think?
