The music of Natasha Kolton on a Finnish Radio show

The last time I wrote in this blog, I introduced you to the paintings of Natasha Kolton as she became the second artist to participate in A White Spot In The Darkness with prints of her magic series Flower Woman.

In that same post I wrote also about Natasha’s music, becase she is not only a visual artist, but also musician and songwriter. You can listen to her music on the aforementioned post.

I love her music so much, and I believe that her sounds should find a wider audience, as they can be illuminating and take us into a really deep inner journey. For that reason I contacted Dj Bunuel to introduce him to Natasha’s music. Dj Bunuel (“El Bunu”) is the director of the radio show Lux on Yle Vega, a Finnish radio station. The show goes live every Sunday between 15.00 and 18.00, three hours of music “without labels” according to the words of the director. He listened to Natashas new album Panadero and, as expected, he found it interesting enough to include it on the next show that will be broadcasted on Sunday 7th of March.

  • In this link you can listen the show live from everywhere in the world (you can do the Time Zone conversion here).
  • Afterwards, you can also access to the podcast in this link.
  • In this link you can add the event to your calendar so you don’t forget to listen to this wonderful radio show.

I did not know Dj Bunuel from before, and I must recognize that the contact with him has been delightful (as I expected jut by listening to his words and the music he programs in his show). It makes me so happy to know that Natasha’s music will be on air in a Finnish radio station and, of course, when Natasha knew about this she just felt off her seat 🤣.

About the project

A White Spot In The Darkness is a solidarity project grown on the words of Reham, a terribly sad person. Trapped in Syria, all she can dream is about escaping that madness.

I have been for about two and a half years in almost daily contact with her. In all this time we have developed a deep relationship: she has become like a sister to me. Her pain is deeply rooted on my heart.

With a lot of personal effort and struggle, I have managed to send her several chunks of money to allow her family members to leave the country before her. First her sick father. Her younger brother after that. Later her older brother. Her mom?… dead under the bombs.

The last time I sent her money I was very happy with the idea that soon she would also be out. She crossed the border, she got caught, she was sent back into Syria. She lost the money and all hope…

After that experience she was feeling too embarrassed and hopeless to even talk to me. After insisting I managed to make her talk to me again. She hoped dead, she told me that my efforts to help her it was the only white spot in her total darkness.

The economical effort to help her has been considerable. I have stretched my creativity: done a solitary rifle with one of my works, place a glass jar in a restaurant to get funds, ask for diverse amounts of money to friends and family, sell some photography equipment and much more. Nowadays I feel that all my possible funding sources have dried up. That’s why I start this project hoping that you can help me to help her, hoping that you will become a spot in her darkness too.

I will donate the profits from the sell of this artworks to her. This time I want to have enough for her to get a safer way out, for that I need about 1.500€. Under this text you can find a counter with the amount of money I have collected until now. I offer total transparency. If I manage to run this campaign successfully I will continue the project hoping we can all become more and more white spots in the darkness for other people. I am a person that has simplify his soul to the point to follow only one believe in life, and this is that humanity is about helping each other.
