For Zethu Maseko, a sound, short film and textile artist based in London, sound can be a tool to learn about our past, build our own identities as well as understand futures and imagined futures for ourselves. Her piece Kuphiliswa (which means ‘healing’ in Zulu), is a sound piece written on the Mbira, a pre-colonial, Stone Age instrument she uses to highlight how ancient tools can be used in a contemporary context for healing, storytelling and as a point of conversation.
