Creating Joy from pain: Nandi Jakuja's Sad Girls
THE PLAY LIST
You Will Not Die by Nakhane: There’s nothing like the moment when a new album becomes as comfortable as softening leather. I gave this album a bit of a break after it came out but I was recently far away from home and it provided the kind of personal church that kept me grounded.
I can’t get over how universally captivating By The Gullet is. (MB)
Sad Girls by Nandi Jakuja: I listened to this mix on Soundcloud so many times over the weekend that it feels like my life’s natural score. (ZH)
THE READING LIST
Being Black: Zen and the Art of Living with Fearlessness and Grace by Angel Kyodo Williams: When I discovered her a few weeks ago, I felt like I had found an ally, an auntie, a teacher and somebody I could never have imagined exists. Angel Kyodo Williams, who embodies a finely matured balance between queer black politics and what she calls “inner work”, is guided by her practice as a Zen Buddhist priest. This book is a pocket guide to approach the often difficult process of doing that inner work. (MB)
The Lists were compiled by Milisuthando Bongela and Zaza Hlalethwa
