Wave Farm artists-in-residence Rashid Zakat and Oluwafemi present their residency project Revival! live from the WGXC Acra Studio. Part virtual dance party and part live performance, Revival! is a celebration of visual and sonic transmissions that are contained within Black spiritual and ecstatic experience. The title itself references the religious practices and histories of African Americans who have used spirituals in the form of song, dance, and performance as modes of connection, transcendence, and pleasure outside of the systemic violences pressing on our lives. Zakat and Oluwafemi use turntables to deejay both visual and aural content sourced from an archive of found footage from the internet, documentaries, live performances, and interviews. At Wave Farm Revival! will manifest both as a radio broadcast and a live event at Avalon Lounge in Catskill, NY.
