MDFF: Patou: In Black and White

With a career that spans over four decades and across the globe, Jamaican singer
Pat Powell (PATOU) is one of Australia’s most accomplished yet hidden vocal talents.

He is the artist that everyone wants to work with – the singer’s singer who sings
with 15 bands, including the ARIA award-winning Melbourne Ska Orchestra.

Born in the UK to Jamaican parents, Pat left the racism of the UK as soon as he
could, although ‘stupidly’ found his way to Australia with its own racism issues.
Father to four children from different mothers with varying ethnic backgrounds,
Pat’s children all identify differently and raise a discussion about racism and
where identity comes from.
