Our call-out for your contributions:

Hallo listeners, participants of SGFA and sista comrades in the arts!

We are inviting you to use the archived recordings of women artists from Zambia and Zimbabwe. Choose one of the women’s voices from the archive and mix it with recordings of your own. Please send us your 2-3 minutes remixes by the end of this year (upload online and post us the link). Your contributions will be part of an online playlist and special radio show that we want to publish documenting and celebrating this cross-continental audio correspondence.

We are here in our sound and voices!
