The Traipse

Rappers – sword-dancers drawing on traditions from the mining villages of Northumberland and Durham – toured Yorkshire with storytellers and musicians, collecting tales and characters on their way to the London Rapperlympics, where teams from across the world crossed swords in their annual tournament.
