A spiritual collective energy materialised through sound and music, dance and voice.
This is an invitation to the seance.
A vent of desperation, a call for empowerment from the ancestors.
Looking at the past, present and future, subverting elements used to shape and manipulate us for the imperialist gaze, Sonic Séance is a passage through the minerals of our earth, ancient symbols, sexual leverage and colonial primitivist fantasies.
This is our language to describe our experiences; we stand together, we lose ourselves in musical rapture.
“There’s a world of difference between truth and facts. Facts can obscure the truth” [Maya Angelou]
