We had a wonderful guest for this episode named Sarah; her musician name is Sharouh. Sarah grew up in France, and has a Tunisian-Greek Jewish background. We talked about Sarah’s work as a musician these days in Madrid (where she now lives), as well as musicians who have inspired her. We also talked about international work Sarah has been able to do, using music as a tool for cultural exchange and bridge-building. It was so lovely connecting with Sarah and we hope you enjoy!
This episode is all about SWANA DJ badassery! You’re all in for a treat. These two were such a delight. Soraya (DANA) and Ayn (FANA) are lovely DJs with some music you will be so glad to have in your life.
