Chantal is a writer, the presidente of AfroDiaspor’Arts and organiser of Paris-based Coeur A Coeur Acoustique, a monthly acoustic music event that brings the audience closer to the artist for a truly artistic tête-à-tête. Her heartfelt wisdom is often borrowed for our reviews and such.


Anja (in negotiation) combines her sensitive multicultural chord and her classical training to give us her take of singer-songwriters’ music for a fresh perspective.


Lally (in negotiation) knows her music whether it is African, European, American. She embraces newness and difference with such natural talent that her nomadic experiences cannot but transpire and complement the WSS family.


Melissa (in negotiation) is the topical mind and philosopher. She brings some much needed time and space boundaries to give to the music some much needed political (historical and beyond) contextualisation.

Guest writers are varied and their names will be found on their articles.
