BBC Radio 3 Late Junction: Ana Roxanne’s mixtape … anhören ….

Jennifer Lucy Allan presents a mixtape of soothing sounds from Ana Roxanne, a Los Angeles-based artist and musician. Her interest in the healing power of music started from a young age, first with the R&B divas she discovered in her mother’s CD collection and later through the sacred music she experienced as a devoted choral singer at her local Catholic church.

Her own sound stems from these early encounters, as well as drawing on classical Hindustani singing she learned whilst living in India, and her own experiences identifying as intersex. The mixtape she’s crafted for Late Junction reflects these sonic inspirations, from acapella harmonies and 1940s Bollywood love songs to dub-inflected minimalism and Whitney Houston’s first television appearance. It’s not all sweetness and light on the programme though. Elsewhere there’s caustic vocal manipulations from Amirtha Kindambi and Lea Bertucci that ‘announce the end of softness’ and some original Detroit techno from Underground Resistance founder Mad Mike Banks. From Detroit we’ll travel to the moonlit hilltop in Slovenia where Lori Goldston recorded her new release of cello improvisations, and to an “eternally recurring” basketball court in the soundtrack to a 1981 experimental Japanese short film. Produced by Katie Callin. A Reduced Listening production for BBC Radio 3
