Slow/Lent/আস্তে/Miadana Launch and Radio Show @ We Act Radio

Join us for a radio conversation hosted by Karen Baker & Anthony Leonard and the launch of the new musical piece Slow/Lent/আস্তে/Miadana. Washington-DC based artist Monica Jahan Bose and Paris-based musician Nirina Lune have been collaborating on a musical piece over the last few months. Monica is a Bangladeshi-American artist and climate activist whose work spans performance, painting, film, printmaking, and interdisciplinary projects. Nirina is a French-Malagasy singer, songwriter, and performer whose music incorporates soul, blues and experimental influences to explore the facets of feminine power. Due to the pandemic, in lieu of a live performance in Washington DC,  Nirina and Monica have been collaborating online to creating a music/sound piece called “Slow/Lent/আস্তে/Miadana,” inspired by their times of isolation during the pandemic. Slow/Lent/আস্তে/Miadana responds to the beauty and benefits of slowing down, looking deeper, and shifting our lifestyles toward a more sustainable world. 

Update October 9:  Here is the link to the song.  

This project is supported a Sister Cities Grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.  Washington DC and Paris, France are sister cities and this project enhances cultural and artistic collaboration and connection between our cities.
