LISTENING POST: Kaneng Lolang — "Hold My Place"

Kangeng_lolang_3
Musician.  Painter.  Photographer. Filmmaker.

One of the artists you can hear tonight at URB Alt is Kaneng Lolang.  It'd be reductive to call her music "experimental".  Rather, what she creates are her efforts to help us understand what she hears so clearly: The ancient and the future.

And, as you can see, she fits in perfectly with tonight's emphasis on visual art.
