A sonic meditation on birthing, transformation and surrender.
The poem, Channeling, was originally featured in the book "City of Pearls" (Upset Press, 2019) by Sham-e-Ali Nayeem.

Nayeem writes from the perspective of a Hyderabadi Muslim American, drawing from the languages of her life to compose a poetics of vulnerability and tenderness.

Here, accompanied by a simple electronic soundscape, the listener is invited to a meditative liminal space between birth and death, beginnings and endings, transformation and surrender.
