Location: Scotland
A young woman with awesome curly hair looks on an angle towards the camera. She is wearing a cream top and fantastic hooped earrings.

Cass Ezeji is a singer and performer of critically-acclaimed bands Laps and Golden Teacher.

She is interested in Scotland’s role in colonialism and its erasure from our national psyche. Her essays and prose reinsert black and mixed-race narratives into the Scottish context and call for accountability. She is informed by her Nigerian, Irish & Scottish heritage and growing up in a Glasgow tenement with her mother. As a Gaelic speaker, she seeks to fill historical voids that omit the experiences of black and mixed-race Gaels, seeking to enhance the ways in which we think about Gaelic language and culture.
