Notes and Editorial Reviews

In 1992, Richard Blackford recorded a 15-year-old girl refugee in the Kalighat slum of Calcutta. When her family left her village, they could take none of their few possessions. All she could bring with her were her songs, and they were her link with her village, her past, and her culture; they represented a part of her dignity. Voices of Exile makes no overt political point; rather, it tries to give voice to a wide-ranging group who have suffered exile, and who can give insight into the shared experience of the refugee.
