LISA BRICE

[00]

— A dedication to a much missed friend, confidant and mentor, the late, great Trinidadian artist, musician and poet, Emheyo Bahabba, aka Embah,(1937-2015). The clip is a grainy record of an impromptu performance he gave me in his studio in Port of Spain in 2005, demonstrating his old school Sailor Mas dance moves. The photo offers more detail…Cuss Stud.






He was free flowing with advice and instructions, one in particular on the subject of making work, I recall daily… “Invade Your Own Privacy”.
