Set on a South London estate, this brutally honest audio narrative takes the listener on a fly-on-the-wall journey through the inner city and deep into the mind of a young Londoner as they navigate their environment – combining intricate rhyme schemes, layered storytelling and poetic imagery against a backdrop of hip-hop sonics and epic film score.

The story unfolds as a set of choices young Londoners have to make and the life lessons they have to learn as they transition to adulthood whilst figuring out who they are, and who they want to become.

Benna will be performing the entire body of work, accompanied by supporting artists.

My on-going themes are identity. What it means being raised in the diaspora and adapting to inner-city London life. Out of Darkness captures the essence of what it was like growing up in a pre-gentrified neighbourhood when crime, poverty, community love and a vibrant culture was all in a melting pot of what shaped us into the people we became.
