Singer-songwriter and environmentalist Aditi Veena aka Ditty along with Austrian producer David Raddish and German rapper Keno Langbein is set to debut their collective Faraway Friends, with a record that roots for water conservation in India, hoping to galvanise the movement around it.
Slated for release next week, Rain is Coming features stories of North India’s water activists and grassroots initiatives, in a bid to both acknowledge the grim reality and celebrate efforts to course-correct. The part-fictional, part-documentary record essays what community action sounds like and how it has spurred local women into leading the charge to make their villages water-secure. It features 13 multi-genre offerings of spoken word, rap verses, electronic beats and ambient sounds, interspersed with Ditty’s balmy reassurances and textured reflections.
