Award winning Naarm based musician Reuben Lewis and legendary Meeanjin based spoken word poet Huda Fadlelmawla combine forces in their debut LP, Story of Another Soul.

Known as ‘Huda the Goddess’ on stage, Huda Fadlelmawla delivers powerful spoken word poetry about equality, her journey as a Sudanese refugee and women’s rights. Through trumpet alongside live processing with pedals and laptop Reuben Lewis devises an ever expanding and “vivid listening experience that gleams with sinister detail” (The Wire). There is a vast, monolithic intensity to this collaboration. It plays on expectations, shattering all semblance of familiar form, story and symbol. We are instead evoked to create a new narrative, one that is just between us the listener, the poet and the sound world. This is a first-time creative exchange not to be missed!

“Together Huda and Reuben meld words and sounds into new configurations, neither poem nor music, but something else.” – Des Cowley

“Story of Another Soul is an irresistible and unforgettable album for its irrefutable honesty.” – Tariro Mavondo
