Reflections: BMR Berlin #5 With Sandunes
The fifth Berlin based Border Movement residency saw Mumbai based producer and artist Sanaya Ardeshir aka Sandunes get selected to spend 2 months in Berlin…
“My experience with Berlin has been a very eye opening one because on the one hand it’s a quiet city and there are certain sounds, but I haven’t felt like there’s one sonic identity that it has; maybe that’s an interesting way to transpose that thought process onto the music scene in Berlin in general: there’s isn’t one sonic identity, it’s super diverse.” Sandunes
In 2016 we launched a new residency initiative called BMR to create meaningful and relevant opportunities for music makers from South Asia and Germany. Over the course of 2016 and 2017 BMR invited 6 South Asian artists to Berlin for 2 months and have hosted 3 Berlin based artists in South Asian cities.
