When the gun is replaced by the melody: How does music resist?

‘Even if they don’t have a message, the act of actually playing music itself is resistance,’ says Dr. Sara McGuiness. Classical Thai musician Luang Praditpairoh fought through the melodies of his songs surrounded by oppression; Ahmed Maher signed petitions to bring down the Morsi government in Egypt whilst at concerts around the country and the melody of an old Catalonian song travelled almost a century of different resistance movements. This is a podcast of musical adventures. Features conversations with musicians, writers and academics with special guest appearances from random people pulled off the street. Produced by Lara Sarlak, Fino Patanasiri, Diego M.
