EPISODE #5 ALERTA MIRA-SOL BY BLANCA MUNT
18.06.2021 | LENGHT 1:04:52
How can we be fearless? Are we a community for real? The fifth episode is a reflection on the apparent tension between the privilege of living in a peaceful place and the lurking threat hinted at by our current culture of fear.
In this mix we recreate Blanca's typical day: from 2019 wrapped up in the various messages of a neighborhood chat group created to monitor, control, and advise of any thefts or suspicious actions - we move from moments of panic to the apparent tranquillity of the neighborhood, blurring between the various themes of jazz. A broad and beyond species genre, which can bounce from one social category to another, mindful of its African-American roots.
Alerta Mira-Sol is a book by Blanca Munt, published by Dalpine in 2021.
