A lament. A rite of passage. An incantation towards self-love through the release of pain. A song without words that is like a fire. London based artists, ãssia, will share an intimate sound version of their new EP, Aftercare, which is about lost memories, the passage of time and the care we can receive with the understanding of love.
Ãssia Ghendir is an artist and somatic healing practitioner. Their current practice is research-driven and currently exists at the intersection of geographic movements within ancestry, grief, prayer and queerness. Rooted in ancient amazigh lament practices and north-african rites of passage assia’s vocal work is a precise attunement through pre-verbal incantations that tells of numinous landscapes, human emotions and its malleability.
