Cool tunes from Creole Cuts
Creole Cuts are a collective of DJs and creatives celebrating the sounds of their Caribbean heritage, based in South London. Their shared passion for discovering their own identity through records and music has united them in their own space for exploration and learning.
The director's chair
Irene Baqué is the cutting-edge director behind Soul Sisters and the other Our Sisterhood stories. For this series, Baqué provides an insight into the everyday existence of women from different ages, backgrounds and stages of life, showing the importance of being able to rely on other women to get through the highs and lows. “As a woman who grew up in a very normative environment, I’ve been drawn to people who have a very different reality from mine,” she explains. With an appreciation for raw, colourful visuals, Baqué captures the intimate and powerful nature of sisterly bonds with each film. “I liked the fact that I was given the opportunity to portray inspiring women,” she says, “and to explore topics I felt passionate about and could give a voice to.”
Power behind the playlists
The women of Creole Cuts explain that part of their identity is being mixed race in Britain and the different challenges or experiences they go through as part of that. "Together we have this little community where nothing’s the wrong answer, nothing’s invalidated, we are just free and liberated to express ourselves."
