Radio Diaspora

Transmitting and combining the cultural aegis of the international codes of black community Radio Diaspora uses as a starting point and vanishing point the inexhaustible reservoir of the African Diaspora and the entire universe of references permeating the negritude: their poetry, their historical struggles, their narratives, their codes.

The sound provocation is freely released in masses complex, random and repeated way, deconstruction / construction ideas, timbrismo, polyphony, antiphony, information overload and lyricism that expands through premeditated chaos. They require a sharpening of listening and sexualization of perception. Loud noise to break the pact of silence about the whitening and the naturalization of racism in constant and regular cannibalization of black - diasporic intangible cultural heritage.
