Future Nostalgia: Atiyyah Khan presents Songs of Healing

Tune in for Future Nostalgia with Johannesburg-hailing music journalist, DJ and researcher Atiyyah Khan, who digs out gems, past and present. The show is an extension and representation of the music collective she co-founded in Cape Town called Future Nostalgia, which has been hosting listening sessions in the city for the past eight years.

This month’s show is dedicated to South Africa. These are songs of healing for all those going through hardships right now. In response to all the recent unrest happening all over the region, from injustices in eSwatini; riots and protests in KwaZulu Natal and Gauteng and taxi wars in Cape Town. From conditions of lockdown to loadshedding and curfews in an endless pandemic. An all vinyl mix made up of music from South Africa as a way to celebrate our beauty and spirit of resistance through sound. The show is also dedicated to the great pianist Andre Petersen, who passed away last week.
