We asked each contributor to Adi’s eleventh issue to share a song that resonated with their piece. From Anna Badkhen’s pick, Shostakovich: Symphony No. 7 in C major, Op. 60 ‘Leningrad’’s augural flair to the proud trumpet of Yásnaya Elena Aguilar Gil’s selection, Kumantukxuxpë’s, Ayuujk jä’äy — each song is an epilogue to an issue that insists upon history as a creative act, where the mutability of memory is both a source of peril and potential. Oftentimes, across the haziness of memory, it is sound that persists.
We encourage you to listen as you make your way through Issue 11: Contested Histories.
