Marasa is a project exploring the possibilities of sound and radio run by Sandra Jean Pierre and Jessica Saxby. I’m particularly interested in their experimental storytelling methodology through affective sound design, poetry and music. So far they have created five tapes including Kelman Duran on his album Tabitha, Tabita Rezaire on decolonial healing and the only known recorded speech given by Franz Fanon in 1956. I suggest listening to all five.

Natalie Diaz is a poet and postcolonial theorist; she is Mojave and a member of the Gila River Indian Community, Arizona. Her works often portray the struggles of Native American communities with a profound focus on the connection between spirituality and political resistance. Through this poem, we can experience how she embraces notions of discontinuity, trauma and reclaiming.

At this time of year, I usually spend my weekends visiting one of South London’s many parks and commons. I’m also a fan of Kew Gardens, especially the Arboretum, the Palm House and the Kitchen Garden. I was excited to discover that we can still roam the gardens at Wakehurst and Kew, albeit virtually.
