Verity Sharp with Edinburgh Festival 2017 friends

Verity Sharp is in the Scottish capital to find the best fringe, art and international festival happenings. Local composer Hanna Tuulikki performs live.

BBC at the Edinburgh Festivals: Verity is in the Scottish capital to find the best fringe, art and international festival happenings. Local artist and composer Hanna Tuulikki performs live from the studio, while we also hear from actress and director Josette Bushell-Mingo OBE.

Tuulikki is interested primarily in voice and gesture, creating immersive spaces and playing with the lore of places. She is one of eight composers that has written an original choral work for 'Echoes And Traces' at the Fringe festival, in response to one of Scotland's oldest pieces of music, Nobilis Humilis. Her installation 'spinning-in-stereo' can also currently be seen at Dovecot Studios in Edinburgh.

Bushell-Mingo is starring in her own production, 'Nina', at the Traverse Theatre. The play mixes story and song to celebrate the life of Nina Simone, and draws comparisons between the civil rights movement then and today.

Produced by Jack Howson for Reduced Listening.
