niafou. tapes is a series of radio essays feat. artists who use alternative research mediums to challenge residual forms of subordination in today’s cultural landscape.
For their first edition, they offer a one hour long soundscape, a commission by dj, researcher and music producer Moesha13. It’s an audio collage made from snippets of films, songs, speech and her own voice.
The piece is named : Existing. Becoming. Where creating is a post-colonial revolt and a practice in becoming visible.
