Collaborative curation: sound fragments, arts activism, and The Black Power Station

What happens when colonial sound fragments are actively transformed through the visual arts, roaring praise poetry, and Afrofuturistic remix culture? What are the possible pathways between the International Library of African Music–the world's largest archive of ethnographic music and sound in Africa-and The Black Power Station, an independent collective space in Makhanda, South Africa? Hip Hop artist and Arts Activist Xolile 'X' Madinda, founder and CEO of The Black Power Station in Makhanda will be in conversation with Noel Lobley (Music Professor and Curator, University of Virginia).
