CHICOCO RADIO, PORT HARCOURT, NIGERIA – FEBRUARY 2017

Supported by Arts Council England’s ‘Artist’s International Development Fund’, Shane travelled to Port Harcourt, Nigeria’s oil capital, to launch Sessions in the Shed, a music-making and movement-building project in Port Harcourt’s waterfront slums. He worked with over 45 artists over a two-week intensive project, which included poetry workshops, song composition, music production training, tree planting, radio shows and live performances.

The project culminated in the writing and production of a re-working of a classic tune by the legendary Nigerian musician and activist Fela Kuti. His song No Agreement, was written and recorded by Chicoco Radio artists, and produced by Shane – but this time the song was imagined from a feminist perspective, in the global drive towards gender equality. The track will be released at a future date.
