Here is our call-out for remixes:

Hallo listeners, and sista comrades in the arts of sound!  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.

You can download an mp3 version of the track here 

The track is featuring clips of recordings with: Artists of the Zambia Popular Theatre Alliance (ZAPOTA ); the playwright Mulenga Kapwepwe; the poet Blackheat DeShanti and Band; the cultural activist Ruvimbo Tenga; the Thandanani Women’s Ensemble; the writer Virginia Phiri; the broadcaster and poet Soneni Gwizi; the dancer, musician and actress Thembi Ngwabi; the late Mbira Star Chiwoniso Maraire; the writer and filmmaker Joyce Jenje Makwenda; the poet and actress Sithandazile Dube.
