Saout as a state of mind #2 - Brussels


Saout Radio is happy to announce the launch of its web-radio, a sonic platform that, echoing the Greek review « South as a state of mind », will propose an understanding of the « South » as a mental positioning, rather than as a physically embedded one.
With a rich and diversified programme, the web- radio will not only investigate the concept of the south, but it will also reflect on the possibilities emerging from the word “Saout” (i.e. “sound” and “voice” in Arabic). Through a twofold play of resonances between South/Sound/Saout, new horizons will therefore emerge, inviting listeners to explore them through a process of research and discovery undertaken from both a local and a global perspective.
After the Marrakech step in February, Saout Radio is pleased to present its web-radio in Brussels with the complicity of the art centres L’iselp, Q-O2, Argos and the participation of Radio Panik, Radio Campus Bruxelles and the RTBF.
Saout Radio is a platform and a web radio initiated by the artists Younes Baba-Ali and Anna Raimondo in Morocco in 2012. As an evolving archive, reuniting more than 100 artists from all over the world, the web-radio aims at being both a sonic display and a space for reflexion, production and diffusion of sound and radio art works coming from different contexts and geographies, by endorsing a postcolonial approach.
