What influence does music have in your life as a creative?:

Listening to music from artists not typically represented in the Western music industry is a passive way for me to connect back with my ancestry and subtly practice antiracism. I’d say music is not a massive part of my life, but when I’m designing or crafting, it uplifts my spirits.

Songs to make you feel nostalgic and homey, perfect for the Cancer astrology sign. And a couple of antiracist bonus tracks. One of my favorite tracks is a favorite from my high school days about the decolonization of medicine — it’s not in English, can you guess which one it is?
