Displacement & Belonging

What does home mean when your lineage is disrupted by migration, war, coercion, economics, or personal choice? What makes us belong to a place? What is the sonic footprint we carry in our hearts and minds to give us a sense of home? As an initiative, Sounds of California explores these questions through highlighting the cultural expressions, local traditions, and resonant archives of communities that have historically resisted erasure and rebuilt a sense of place amidst a rapidly changing landscape.
