Hope Against Hope – January 2021

2 blobsFeatured animation by Varsha Naren

The year that passed has been monumental. We have travelled in the interiors of our own perceptions of love, fear, heartbreak, existential confusion and visceral pain. To bring out undertones of that very rumination of life, ‘Hope against Hope’, our January playlist is a subtle indulgence. For us, as an editor-writer duo, it maps our own tendencies and lushly laminates it with a tint of hope.

Sound-scapes filled with starflower odes, flute essences and Indian folk music, the January playlist is an enchanted experience. Even if the newness of a future year begins to fade, we hope, nevertheless, you have consistent moments of serendipitous joy and happiness.

You can listen to the entire playlist on YouTube or Spotify.
