Sudan: colourful, vibrant, strong. Intriguing cultures that have not been previously documented, fascinating immaterial heritage and oral literature.
The book has five parts, as a day has in Sudan, segmented by the Muslim prayer times: Subuh, Duhur, Asur, Maghreb and Eisha, which have become a practical structure to the day for people of different faiths and cultures in Sudan. Following these quintiles, the five chapters capture day-to-day endeavours, drawing an analogy between a day and human Becoming, Striving, Sharing, Belonging and Transcending throughout life.
One woman’s journey into the heart of Sudan. An artistic study, in photography and spoken word. Rich cultural and spiritual heritage, in some of the hardest-to-access regions of the world.
