A Thousand Channels
The second episode of this iteration of A Thousand Channels listens critically to Indian-occupied Kashmir with anthropologist-poet Ather Zia, and ‘Azad’ Kashmiri migrants through the oral history archive project Tape Letters by Wajid Yaseen/Modus Arts; to poetic-historical-fantastical conceptions of African identity via a sound work by Belinda Zhawi and the first act of a radio play by artist Christian Nyampeta; to the musical influences between East Africa and south/east Asia via archival record label Ostinato records, and to dis/harmonic ‘states of quo’ with SAVVYZAAR radio.
