Reader profile: Chimène Suleyman

We're delighted to announce Chimène Suleyman as the latest and final addition to our official Bands & Books line-up. Chimène first came to our attention performing at the launch of Stuart Evers Ten Stories About Smoking, we then watched her enchant the audience at Lit behemoth Literary Death Match and were smitten once again.  To be honest she had us at 'Hiya'. 

Chimène Suleyman is a writer and spoken word artist. She will be representing the UK later this year as part of the literary section of the International Biennale in Rome and has recently completed her first exhibition with the Royal Opera House with a text installation based in Purfleet, Essex.  She is also the creator of London spoken-word open mic night Kid, I Wrote Back

We asked Chimène to give us some insight to the music that makes her brain work, and she gave us the following:
