Terera says: “I live in Soho, London. I was there throughout last summer. I saw Soho shift from deserted tranquillity, where the only sounds were birds and church bells to the noise and heat of demands for social justice and civil unrest. I saw couples and families sneaking bike rides and I saw police brutality. Homelessness and empty properties. People helping each other and people hurting each other. Confusion and hope and strength.

“I found myself taking my guitar and writing about what I was seeing and feeling and thinking.

“I ended up writing a collection of songs and my aim was to respond immediately to what I was experiencing. I wanted to answer the question: how do we communicate in this atmosphere? How do we find love and balance and strength?

“Filmed during lockdown in Soho’s Crazy Coqs with multiple cameras, my guitar and a piano, these are songs of protest and joy and anger and love.”
