'MANIA' is an audio exploration of psychosis in relation to our society, generational trauma, healing, and magic. This project is a means to explore mental illness as an ongoing response to oppressive environments. Your host YATTA will investigate the relationship between psychotic flare-ups and what’s not working in our society, with a specific focus towards how capitalism encourages preferential treatment of
neurotypical minds and extroversion, as well as supression of feelings.
YATTA is a Sierra-Leonean american digipoet and performer who remixes shamanic sounds with her jazz vocals to create music to lie down in. A former Flux Factory resident, she runs Operations at DIY Collective Silent Barn in Brooklyn, NY.
