We dig up some unreleased fragments of the conversation with artist, weaver, writer, poet and indigenous researcher Elvira Espejo Ayca that we were unable to include the first time around. We talked about the flow of linguistic structures and writing processes, introducing the notion of “oraliture” and the importance of the rhythm of song in the exchanges that take place in her community.

Conversation: Violeta Ospina, Ricardo Cárdenas, Noela Covelo and Anna Ramos. Sound production: Violeta Ospina and André Chêdas.
