Utopia Theatre's Tchiyiwe Chihana is joined in conversation with Aar Maanta.
Aar Maanta is a Somali-British musician whose activism, work and creativity has led him to become a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). As a singer and songwriter, he has embraced a mix of styles that brings influences from rock and reggae together with traditional Somali and Arabic music. Aar Maanta's songs are written in the traditional Somali poetic form using allegory and alliteration to address issues of relevance to Somali immigrants.
Workshops and masterclasses in Utopia Theatre’s Creative Hub are for people of African origin aged 16 and above.
