The Nelly Boum Show: WATER

A monthly show to discover change-makers activating systems from within. With a focus on North African and caucasian music and experts (but also showcasing international talents), the Nelly Boum Show is a series of inspirational, quirky and funny interviews- and brilliant music specifically tailored for content creators and independent thinkers and makers of new worlds. 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.

All water on earth arrived as ice on asteroids and comets from space- meaning water is an alien! Did you also know that there is the same amount of water on Earth as there was when the Earth was formed... so the water youre drinking today could contain molecules that dinosaurs drank. And, did you know that 75% of the human brain is water and 75% of a living tree is water. In this months Nelly Boum Show, we are exploring the only chemical that expands when it goes from a liquid to a solid- water. Come get liquified with water experts...
