Maëlla Kancel is from the French Caribbean Island of Guadeloupe now living in Paris. She is the host of the podcast Karukerament, a podcast available in French and English - about the representation of the Caribbean in cinema and television. 

In this episode I chat with Maëlla about:

  • Growing up in Guadeloupe and her experiences as a French Afro Caribbean Woman.
  • Caribbean Identity & the struggle to define ourselves
  • What Dancehall can learn from K-Pop
  • How the Caribbean audience can propel our culture to be bigger.
