Songs from 26H, Home recordings of Moushumi Bhowmik–with Oliver Weeks, Satyaki Banerjee and Sukanta Majumdar releases soon. After a long hiatus of fifteen years, this is Moushumi’s fourth album/audio essay.

This is also the third production of Travelling Archive Records, which is a shared, ongoing journey, a shared space of listening. In this sense, this is an inclusive album, trying to record multiple voices within a sound-space. This, for Moushumi, is a political locus about an aesthetic journey.

humanitiesunderground spoke to Moushumi recently about this forthcoming work, the idea of overlapping selves and threads, about an ongoing nurturing of a shared platform and also about the musical and archival transportations of this amorphous but growing collective into the future.

Here is the audio recording of the interview:

The album will be available on the February 11, 2017, 5:00 pm, at the Vivekananda Hall, Jadavpur University. Also available, upon inquiry, at info@thetravellingarchive.org and travellingarchiverecords@gmail.com.
