Dogs Versus Shadows-Oracle Mama Dot

“This is an album inspired by British-Guyanese poet Fred D’Agiuar’s ‘Mama Dot’ sequence (1985). It explores the different strands of a mighty, mythical grandmother figure who has the task of creating a place away from (but rich in the memories of) Africa. 

I have taken the idea of an Oracle figure watching over a mythical place, but all is not well. There is disharmony and threat and the real
and metaphorical landscape is tainted with nostalgia - a longing to be understood as a place of hope and dreams where everyone, regardless of their origin is welcome.”
Lee Pylon (Dogs versus Shadows)
