Singing With the Whole Body

Author/ Editor: Lily Parsey

For our documentary we were able to interview the amazing Bella Kerridge who gave us great insights into her life, the different languages she speaks and questions of identity and homeland. A very important aspect of her life we were not able to include in the final documentary was her very close connection to music.

Raised in a “very interesting milieu” of music, acting and poetry, music is “in” Bella. It is something she associates with a sense of belonging and identity.

In the below clip, Bella talks about her relation to music and you will even get to hear her beautiful singing, “not only from her voice but her whole body”.
