Episode Three

COVER Ep three.png

The third episode of this iteration of A Thousand Channels listens to Radio Ceylon’s resonance at times of war and nation-building with Isabel Huacuja Alonso; the multiversal adversities of the Indus river and Makran coast guided by Zahra Malkani; and the cosmologies of the South African free jazz scene via Siyabonga Mthembu. Rare Japanese-language broadcasting in Sri Lanka is refigured in a collaborative work initiated by Yoshinori Niwa, while Kani Kamil sounds out an invisible archive of southern Kurdish womens’ testimonies. Finally, Palestine’s Radio alHara offer a special mixdown of their 2021 transmission series, Sonic Liberation Front.
