Remembering Galdino in yet another Dubversive way :More new Dub visuals. Finding IR creations in Jamaica
These are some words from Dr Das
“I recently went to Manipur, India with Chandrasonic and Sunjay representing ADF, to collaborate on a song with the musician/singer/poet Akhu of Imphal Talkies for an episode of the music series The Dewarists. Here is that episode- the documentation of the entire creative process and the final performance of the song “Qutub Minar.””
From our perspective the programme has some very inspirational heartfelt words from Sunjay about the importance of doing what you truly believe in. There are also good humour and some dangerous dubversive words / perspectives ( espcially about the subversive potential of pure sound ) from Dr Das . It was really great to see the IR Galdino t shirt Dr Das was wearing during the interview.Brazilian media still doesn”t want to really deal with the murder of Pataxo warrior Galdino but through the dub efforts of many we honour Galdino ‘s memory and use creative ways to do so .

At the same time Dubdem is designing new posters and visual mixes for a new IR book

IR has it own particular style of distrubtion using various ways and means adapting to the moment .. sometimes its hand to hand through dub conspirators, freedub …. free copies given by out by travelling conspirators. In Brazil Zumbi used to distribute IR recordings on his hand drawn cart that travelled throughout the various neighbourhoods of Rio DE Janeiro…Now in Jamaica…you can find the IR recordings and creations through I-Nation Books & Necessities A super dub mobile unit selling radical books ..I Nations is always setting up at different cultural and conscious musical events in Jamaica and is known for having the reading materialthat is on point and subversive ..so if you are ever trodding in Jamaica…look for this dub bredren I Nation if you are looking for some IR material..
