Mathinnyi – Documentary Film on Jèrriais and Badlabecques

Our singer Kit Ashton has released a documentary film about Jèrriais and Badlabecques.

He made it as part of his recently completed MA in Music at Goldsmiths College, University of London.

The short film explores issues of music, language, and cultural identity in Jersey, and how Kit and the band are trying to use music to safeguard the endangered language of Jèrriais. Kit performs with Badlabecques and interacts with locals in this very personal ethnography.
