Sugar Routes is a project about mapping the Afro-Atlantic in ways that connect the port cultures in the Deep South, Caribbean and Latin America. I create blueprints of maps akin to the ones European colonizers used to map their commodities, enslaved Africans, gold, sugar, cotton, tobacco, coffee and molasses. Through these goods and the base objects like spoons, barrels, wood boxes and washboards form the base of African-American and Afro-Caribbean folk music and spirited traditions. Through imagination, genius and survival in the face of repeated violent trauma on the black body Afro-Atlantic music reflects the pains and joys we inherit in the African Diaspora. La Sirene follows women characters as they aid some of history's most well known sergeants for nation sovereignty, Pan Africanism and black liberation throughout the Americas.
