PASS LANDING IN LISBON

PASS LANDING IN LISBON

Chimurenga and Hangar presented Radio MAC , a program curated by Sonia Vaz Borges and Monica de Miranda – live on PASS 14-21 June 2021.

Radio MAC is a reimagining of the radio organ of the Anti Colonialist Movement (MAC) founded by students and revolutionaries such as Marcelino dos Santos, Mario de Andrade and Aquino de Braganca in 1957 in Paris, in collaboration with Neto, Cabral and other nationalists in Lisbon.

Programming consisted of eight episodes on the role of radio and more broadly, sound, in the African liberation struggle against Portuguese colonialism, along with stories of migration. The constructed dialogues included music, speech, poetry, and performance.

Participants included: Raquel Lima, Telma Tvon, Carla Fernandes, Marinho Pina, Chalo Correia, Galissa, DJ Lucky, and Victor Gama.

Radio MAC is part of Chimurenga’s ongoing research on the aesthetics and politics of radio in Africa’s liberatory struggles.
