  • Donny Hathway: a classic feature

    To remember the soul genius, who jumped to his death 35 years ago this month, here's a piece that singer-songwriter Kandia Crazy Horse wrote in 1999 – from Rock's Backpages

    My recent theory is that if the late soul man and scribe Donny Hathaway had been white he would be as (cult) famous as Cosmic American Gram Parsons; mentioned in the same breath as the prematurely departed mystic Nick Drake.

  • Feast: the Young Vic goes Yoruba

    It spans 300 years, takes in five countries – and needed 10 writers. Maddy Costa on an ambitious attempt to dramatise the culture and belief system of Yoruba

    There's a party going on. Damon Albarn is busy improvising on a thumb piano. Sola Akingbola, the drummer from Jamiroquai, is playing a shuffle on a shekere (a large maraca strung with beads).
