This week from the globe over we sample tracks identified as being from or inspired by cultures of the “Global South”, a much disputed concept of otherness and “third world” status that intersects with geo-politics, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, class and religion.
Leigh Anne Duck, who reflects on the term Global South as co-editor of the journal The Global South, highlights the positive aspect of the term. In comparison with “Third World” and “Developing World”, Duck considers the term Global South to carry more weight in resisting hegemonic forces than other connotations of persistent underdog status confer.
What does that sound like in music? From Palestine, to India, Iran to Africa and London, this mix celebrates the intersectionality of identity and association through musical form.
