We asked y’all which creators  inspire you these days, and one response we got was, Sabina England- an awesome poet and videographer who just so happens to be deaf, desi, muslim, and a rad woman aka deaf brown girl. Here’s what contributor Mohini Hewa has to say about her work:

When emotion goes beyond words and explode through imagery, when
the beautiful but terrifying experience of life is expressed through
a gaze, through gestures, a smile or a frown. When languages cross borders and sit in a circle, all together, sharing a moment and uniting under the same name.

It is the whisper of the wind, the sunbeam that caresses your cheek and bring you back to a time of innocence and naive learning, the name that comes to my mind is Sabina. The gracious dance of purity emanating from my screen and tenderly hugging me.

It is visual poetry for the senses.

- Mohini Hewa

P.S. Not only were geeked to see that she was performing alongside Aparna Nancherla for Be(com)ing Desi party for the Smithsonian by Subcontinental Drift earlier this year, but Sabina’s latest video, deaf brown girl features sound design by our own Bay Area artist, Micropixie

Check out Moroccan musician-singer-songwriter, ZAiiO! Born in Casablanca, Morocco, ZAiiO is now based in London. She just dropped her new album, “Bon Voyage” today. Songs are available for free download. 

Quoted From Do Androids Dance? website:

Bon Voyage is a project that the Casablanca-born, London-residing ZAiiO has been crafting since 2013, recording parts of it at The Agafay Studio in Morocco. With so many vocalists taking the time to really spread their wings and get put on, ZAiiO seems to be soaking up so many sounds and incorporating it into her overarching personal style. Her story is even interesting; I don’t know too many MCs who started out doing hip-hop karaoke and turned that into pursuing the art of rhyme with original lyrics.

Listen to the songs here
