Labi Siffre (born 25 June 1945) is a British poet, songwriter, musician and singer. In Abergavenny in 97 Labi Siffre was the main performer in a programme which included: Monmouth's 'The Mighty Pledge' and 'Neil Kinnock' in converstation with 'Victor Spinetti'. In this video clip he performs his hit single 'Something Inside so Strong', amongst the best of all of the protest songs. Siffre's work; compositions, poetry or performance, is powerful always in that it reflects his own deeply felt views. Views he has been unafraid to express using whatever political platform is appropriate. In that respect his career bears some resemblence to the French singer/songwriter Francis Cabrel. It may be thought that many of the battles Siffre fought with such courage in the late 90s have been conclusively won, but I suspect that he would hold the view that prejudice takes many forms and that in any case vigilance is the best watchword. Apologies for some of the sound quality: an in-camera microphone and of course the analogue technology of the time. But as ever, proof that a powerful live performance is often better than the colder atmosphere of the recording studio. ENJOY! Labi Siffre can be followed on: http://www.intothelight.info
