Indian Ocean Memories and African Migrants (film and discussion)
Shihan de Silva (University of London)

This session features a film produced and directed by Shihan de Silva on the easterly movement of Africans both voluntary and involuntary. Performing traditional art forms enables Afro-Sri Lankans to carve out a niche in the cultural arena of their hostland. Fading memories of slavery and the slave trade can still be heard in the narratives of their oral histories.
