The Nelly Boum Show: HOME

Tune in for the Nelly Boum Show presented by award winning director and experience designer Nelly Ben Hayoun. Every month, the Nelly Boum Show unravels a theme and explores it in a multiverse of possible new futures- we listen and discuss the economy, politics, and other systems as we know it through music. Along the way, interviewees share their methods, and models and how they got to do what they are doing. Led by the founder of the University of the Underground, boxer and SETI (Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute, and NASA International Space orchestra director Nelly Ben Hayoun-Stépanian; the show is a plethora of unique talents and pluralistic thinkers.

This month we question our HOME-S.

‘Stay Home’…a tune for corona time, in this new Nelly Boum show, we discuss family, homecoming, repatriation but also departure.

‘Home’ is loaded with happy- or sad- memories, complex colonial but also conflict dynamics. A special show, as Nelly is preparing to leave for Armenia in two weeks to start recording her new movie in the land of her family- hoping to reconnect with her ‘home’ there – while the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan has now reached extremes in the past few days.
