First, WMMT's Rachel Garringer chats with Appalshop staff: Ada Smith, Mimi Pickering, and Taylor Pratt about how the organization has produced media despite, and in spite, of oversimplified national stories about our home for 50 years.

Mosaic Interactive & the International Language of Music

In this episode, we're exploring the power of music to connect us across difference. Found Sound Nation's #MosaicInteractive crew guides us through this journey of musical and cultural exchange: connecting memories of Kurdish women in northern Turkey with those of women here in Eastern Kentucky, dreams of Palestinian children to international conversations around borders, and Moroccan Gnawa rituals to Appalachian old time songs. They passed through Whitesburg, KY in March 2019 while the project was in development, and sat down in the studio to talk about their process in building a multidisciplinary multimedia performance that premiered at Big Ears Festival March 21-23, 2019.
