Partition Music project, Mixtape Memories 2021/22 is part of a larger five-year project titled Migrant Memory and the Postcolonial Imagination which uses creative, arts-based approaches alongside in-depth interviewing to understand how community identities are produced and expressed by South Asian people in the UK through processes of remembering Partition, migration and resettlement. Facilitated by Leicester artist - Mr Shay, participants explored their creativity through sampling sounds from their home environment, learning music production skills, writing original lyrics and performing. The participants have made two wonderful music tracks and starred in their own video seen below.
