Using Charles Tripp’s approach to artistic interventions as a means of resistance, Skylet examines the ways in which songs have a way of reclaiming public space, inviting dialogue and sympathy, building identity and solidarity through shared vocabulary, and producing “a common, mutually reinforcing imagery” that challenges the regime’s oppression.
