[Repeated from Thursday 10.30pm.] Radia, the international group of independent cultural radio stations, presents a new show realised by one of its members, exploring "new and forgotten ways of making radio." This week, Show 945: Entramadas Anfibias, by Léa Roger (for Radio Panik). "At the start of 2023 we conducted expeditions with our microphones in the Tariquía and Carrasco National Parks, located in Andean forests and mountain jungle (Yungas) in Bolivia. We found ourselves in the heart of the paradoxes of conservation, far from a romantic view. The Carrasco National Park is an ecological corridor where the last specimens of the Sehuencas frog are found, in danger of extinction by a construction of large hydroelectric plant while the Tariquía National Reserve is threatened by hydrocarbon extractivism. Communities try to resist to the interventions of the companies. This sound-poetic piece, created by two hands, seeks an ecology of encounter to build new relationships with others - humans, animal species, plants and the elements." Recorded and composed by Léa Roger (Be) & Cristina Canedo (Bol). Mixed by Léa Roger.
