The Sound of Natural Music

Photographs by Mark Lyndersay.

Picture courtesy Mark LyndersayMy name is Avianne Callender and my all-acoustic instruments music band, Terrenaissance, has a new EP, Earthology.

I was born and raised in Diego Martin and Diamond Vale, a place I loved for the little bit of greenery here and there. And the sense of wonder, serenity and adventure that comes with being near nature… Even if that only means neighbourhood parks and backyard trees.

My small direct family [is well] but, sometimes, I am reminded of a deceased aunt or uncle by someone else's reference to a word. A song. A facial expression. [Even] a meal. People remain with us in the smallest of ways.

​A mail lady

Picture courtesy Mark LyndersayMy name is Sharon Atwell and I am a post lady.

I consider myself blessed to be from Santa Cruz, born and bred. Brian Lara and I grew up together. We used to go to parties. We used to go to Santa Cruz RC harvest. We used to have a nice time. Brian is one of the best things to have come out of Santa Cruz. One of them.

I come from a big family of ten, seven girls, three boys. I’m the fourth child and fourth girl. One, two, three, four girls and then the rest were boys.

Grounds for delight

My name is Hanson Harribans and I’m a coffee-lover, not a barista.

People call me “Handsome” Harribans all the time. I don’t know where my parents got the name “Hanson” from. But I like it. It works as a conversation starter. When people get tied up, I say, “Just call me Hans”.

My last name is spelled Harribans, not Harribance. People confuse me with the fortune-teller guy (Sean Lalsingh Harribance). He’s no relation but I could probably try some predictions. Like that I might make it with this coffee thing.

I have this hairstyle now, which is called, “not much hair”. But I’ve had dreadlocks and clean cuts.

I’m from Cocoyea Village, San Fernando, just past St Joseph’s Village. Heading to the roundabout.
