A southern occultist juxtaposed in the middle of the city, Breanna Barbara writes songs that make your soul dance, songs that make you question how many lives you’ve led, and if you ever lived at all.
Through her rambling of the earth, she traced a map constellated with pins, strings, and patterns. Here’s one that traces St. Augustine to New Orleans, to New York City, knotting the places where she once lived. Another loops around the kingdoms of Scandinavia then, lower, ties the mountains of Switzerland, through the beaches of Italy, to the monuments of Paris where she sung her songs to foreign followers.
The densest fragment of the tapestry, with strands cross-crossing throughout, covers North America, where she toured with trip-hop legend Tricky before recording songs for the his latest record and his label’s first compilation.
If you squint, these motifs might start making sense but don’t be fooled: the full picture is yet to come.
