Dub Poetry | Jean ‘Binta’ Breeze |Book: Third World Girl


Jean ‘Binta’ Breeze is a popular Jamaican Dub poet and storyteller whose performances are so powerful she has been called a ‘one-woman festival’. Pamela Robertson-Pearce filmed two performances by her at the Y Theatre, Leicester, in March and October 2010 which are included on THIRD WORLD GIRL: SELECTED POEMS, a book with DVD published by Bloodaxe Books in June 2011 (together with an interview by Jane Dowson). In this extract from the March reading, Jean reads three poems: ‘simple things’, ‘ordinary mawning’ and ‘Aid Travels with a Bomb’. With thanks to Bloodaxe Books for permission to include Jean’s poems in this video, and to Lydia Towsey of the Lyric Lounge for organising the readings at the Y.
