BLOG | Desi tales with hip-hop, blasted into 21st century
Tongue Tied and Twisted is a new theatre production by Black Country Touring (BCT). It blasts Indian storytelling into the 21st century combining the talents of UK music producer PKCtheFirst on stage with international storyteller Peter Chand.
The stories and traditional tales were collected from Punjabi elders and is a fusion of live storytelling, with a blend of Urban Hip Hop and classical South Asian sounds.
Peter Chand and PKC gave an insight into how they have worked on this together under the direction of Steve Johnstone while Peter discussed his top tips on how to tell a story. PKC also gave exclusivity to Vimal and Zoe, airing his new track Beyond Problems. A beautiful sitting-in-the-garden tune with your pint of cider and plate of strawberries.
