Bex Burch, who plays and composes for the Ghanaian xylophone, explores the difference between 'doing' and 'being' as a source of creativity, and shows how it works in her music.
"A great example of the difference between doing and being is that I don’t be, or become my teacher. I learn their way of doing something and still have to figure out who I am and what those tools are working with in me."
Recorded in front of a live audience at Womad, the World of Music, Arts and Dance festival in Wiltshire.
