Sonic gifts that break down barriers

Joining our sistaz around the globe in celebrating International Women’s Day 2015… we can now release the complete playlist of sonic cross-cultural exchanges remixed by Artists of Listening from France, Germany, Greece, the Netherlands, Finland, UK, Brazil, Canada and the US. As Garth Rennie at Cjam FM put it “sonic gifts that break down barriers”! 

On 9. and 23. February, our playlist of sonic cross-cultural exchanges went on-air to listeners across the Windsor/ Detroit border. Garth Rennie the tracks in his show “Soundscape-Rhythms” on Cjam 99.1 FM, a community and campus radio in Windsor CA. As always in his show, Garth presents the featured tracks cushioned in his live on-air remixes… often, as he says having five or more signal running at one time…

Garth Rennie writes:

“Some woman in Detroit called in asking for the playlist then emailed saying she’d never heard stuff like that… The Detroit connection / prospect always exciting to me. Even though it is across the water [i.e. US] at the end of my street [i.e. Canada] still feels a world apart in some ways [… like across the Zambezi… ?! add. me]. “Zambezi Women” and Remix Artists are creating gifts that break down barriers. This much I know”

Soundscape-Rhythyms broadcast 23 February

We warmly thank all the correspondents in this cross-cultural exchange for sharing their skills with us all; the women artists in Zambia and Zimbabwe for sharing their stories and the International Artists for their response to the women in sound and music!
