about

Perspectives on Tradition - a new collaborative release from Stick In The Wheel featuring Jon1st, Nabihah Iqbal and Olugbenga Adelekan.

Back in 2019, Stick In The Wheel invited contemporary musicians to explore what traditional music and culture meant to them, through the folk music library/audio archive at Cecil Sharp House. DMC scratch champion Jon1st explored samples and fragments of music and folklore from his home city of Leicester, BBC6Music DJ and musician Nabihah Iqbal looked into the Dorset folk songs contemporary to Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the D’Urbervilles, and Metronomy’s Olugbenga focused on Nigerian folktales and Kenyan field recordings.

SITW: “Our aim for this project was to open the doors of this archive to new people, to uncover treasures in order to make new connections. Our initial residency was an invitation to explore, rather than produce a finished product. Also, making connections between the artists as well as to the archive.”

The result is a collection of music looking at the notion of fragments, archives, what the function of traditional music is in 2022 and how we can be meaningful with it. Whether that’s the traditions of scratching and sampling, or how we can relate to others across borders and cultures, or attempting to make sense of the prism of an archive.
