Ingrid, her daughter will sing some of Doreen’s signature tracks with members of Trans Global Underground the internationally acclaimed world music fusionists with whom Doreen worked very closely.

Support is from Poetic Pilgrimage, two young Muslim women who break with tradition with their pioneering and innovative rappoetry. DJ sounds are provided by the legendary DJ Ritu who produced and presented A World in LOndon on BBC London until recently
