Songs from Home

A 2 minute video of Nik, a busker in Bath with Serbian background.

“I love the way that busking as an art-form surprises people and it changes public spaces.  No matter where you’re from, there’s a universal language in song”

This video by Lewis Jelley was made using a mobile phone with fish-eye lens.

The story it tells is compact and rich.  In merely 2 minutes, it has themes of how music carries a culture and story; how music transports us somewhere else; that it is made by music lovers rather than beggars; what it is to be a immigrant.
