簡介

Journeys involving music, migration and modernity have been central to my thinking about cultural practice in the last couple of decades. From African-Asian crossings in the Caribbean to Hindustani music in Mumbai to Indian-Chinese musical crossings, these journeys traverse issues of nationhood and subject-formation as they take shape in the global south. As I explore these trajectories of music and voice production, I try not to use the vocabulary of fusion and multi-culturalism which to my mind flatten into easy resolution a host of complicated histories of connection and dis-connection. The focus of my talk is on Saath-Saath, a project that brings together vocalists, instrumentalists and a poet. These artists, who are from India, Hong Kong, and Mainland China, met from 2016 to 2020 across these different locations and made music together as they experimented with language and melody. Their album was released in 2021 and was nominated for the Grammy Award. The docufilm, Movement Traces (dir. Surabhi Sharma, 2021) maps the musicians’ journey.
