In this week's episode of Ancestral Body Noise, 
dumama is in conversation with Indrani Ashe (@theshadowarchivist). 
Together they go on a reflexive journey unpacking Indrani's interdisciplinary works: my goddess gave birth to a goddess, yoga without adriene and her relationship with ritual, ancestry and migration. 

Interdisciplinary artist Indrani Ashe ইন্দ্রাণী
responds to a world in which transnational histories and hybrid identities have been strategically marginalized and erased, where profit-based algorithms continue the work of colonialism and imperialism, and perception becomes reality. Ashe was born in North Carolina in the United States, to an Indian mother whose parents fled the state of Bengal after the violent political upheaval of partition, and a father descended from Welsh-English settlers of the Appalachian Mountains. Resting the narrative from these hegemonical structures, she creates necessary mythologies at the interplay between image, text, and performance: an intersectional feminist shadow archive which regenerates a damaged past and creates potential realities for the future.
