MONSOON SESSIONS #1
(Two-channel video, duration: 28'16, 2022)
Monsoon Sessions is a series of invitations to three London-based DJs (Chooc Ly, Nadi, mellowdramatics) of tropical descent. Each DJ produced a mix and co-wrote a short story set in a far-flung future with a global tropic. What does it mean to have a New and Old Tropics in a mono-climatic world? The stories unfold along with the filmed DJ sets telling tales of inter-tropical travel and the “mixing” together of different cultures intensified by climate diasporas. Tales and tunes weave through time like the seasonal monsoons of the tropics.
