Watch it Again – First Vodcast: SOURCE x Audible Lands

Eric Lee, Banglar Kantha-Dibashram Cultural Group and The Observatory

Experimental band The Observatory, filmmaker Eric Lee, and music groups from the migrant-worker community were in the initial stages of collaboration on Source × Audible Lands, a documentary screening and live-music performances, when circuit-breaker measures kicked in.
 
From 25 May, these budding encounters will be presented through 5 teaser videos, released fortnightly.
 
Containing a range of folk to pop to devotional music, deeply influenced by South and Southeast Asian traditions, these humane documentations provide a glimpse into Singapore's diverse and discrete musical landscape.
 
This first of five vodcasts spotlights the Banglar Kantha-Dibashram Cultural Group. Meeting every Sunday since 2011 in a Rowell Road shophouse, its Bangladeshi migrants’ patriotic songs, heartfelt poetry, and other creations evoke a sense of home, far away from home.
