Zimbabwean music, the Mbira is a traditional instrument of the Shona people of

achieve a free voice, Lin’s act references Tunisia’s Jasmine Revolution of 2010/11 and

its subsequent development, as well as unauthenticated reports that some Chinese

local authorities had banned the sale of jasmine in 2011, seemingly fearful of the

symbolic meaning attached to the flower.

using sound as a creative medium a few years ago and often uses her own voice in her

work. Unvoiced-voiced was recently performed live in Glasgow (http://www.linliart.

For power? For enlightenment? Can the destruction of beauty lead to a sustainable future?
