Galya Bisengalieva - Live at Le Guess Who? 2021

Kazakh-British composer and violinist Galya Bisengalieva performed her latest album 'Aralkum' in full live at Le Guess Who? 2021, as part of the program presented by Uncloud. You can now listen & relive the entire performance. 

"It has been speculated how the current environmental crisis we face will inspire musicians, the same way warfare and social justice have. Perhaps no current artist embodies this prediction as heartily as Galya Bisengalieva, whose latest record, ‘Aralkum’, is a harrowing tale of destruction (but also hinting at a hopeful future), focused on the shrinking of the Aral Sea. Bisengalieva’s cold, pensive drone on the killing of nature cuts deeper than a thousand speeches."
