Nuits Sonores: Electronic Music As A Language Of Resistance | Mariana Berezovska, Rachel Almeida & Richard Akingbehin

With Nuits Sonores, Richard Akingbehin, Rachel Grace Almeida, and Mariana Berezovska

Refuge Worldwide's Richard Akingbehin discusses electronic music's relationship to resistance and activism with journalists Mariana Berezovska and Rachel Almeida. They will each share a favourite piece of electronic protest music and discuss the numerous complex issues surrounding the topic. For example: do DJs have an obligation to be politically engaged? Are dance floors becoming too escapist to be a suitable space for activism? Are community hubs, like radio stations, replacing the dance floor as the centre of electronic music's resistance?
