Sesión 08 - Descubre el Mundo de los Podcasts Bolivianos: Un Llamado a la Diversidad Sonora y Cultural

En este emocionante episodio, retomamos los micrófonos de PachaKamani y abordamos la pregunta clave: ¿Por qué hacer un podcast en Bolivia? (marzo 2020) Exploramos las propiedades y beneficios de los podcasts, entendiendo que son programas de radio en internet que nos liberan visualmente y nos brindan la libertad de realizar otras actividades mientras nos informan, entretienen y educan. También destacamos la diversidad y riqueza de los podcasts, y compartimos una lista de diversos podcasts bolivianos que abarcan temas desde noticias e información hasta cultura, música, literatura y tecnología. Además, nos emociona presentar dos nuevos proyectos (publicado en marzo del 2021). El primero es “A través de la Ventana”, un podcast que analiza y reflexiona sobre la violencia contra las mujeres en Bolivia, brindando información y conocimiento en colaboración con especialistas, representantes de instituciones y activistas. Este podcast es una iniciativa valiosa para sumarse a la lucha contra la violencia de género. El segundo proyecto es “Sonoridades Narrativas”, que busca explorar y narrar lugares, personas y territorios a través del sonido. Con la cartografía sonora como base, este proyecto combina registros de audio con explicaciones breves y narrativas en un formato de podcast, ofreciendo una experiencia sonora e informativa completa. Se han publicado varios episodios que exploran conceptos como paisaje sonoro, etnografía sonora y antropología sonora, y presentan grabaciones relacionadas con la ritualidad sonora de Todos Santos. Antes de terminar continuamos con la Entrevista a “Michelle Bigenho antropóloga de la música (06/2018)”. Te invitamos a sumergirte en el fascinante mundo de los podcasts bolivianos, a escuchar los proyectos en curso de PachaKamani y a unirte a la iniciativa utilizando el hashtag #PodcastBO. Descubre historias, conocimientos y sonidos que enriquecerán tu experiencia auditiva y te conectarán con la cultura y la diversidad de Bolivia. No te pierdas esta oportunidad de explorar nuevos horizontes sonoros y sumergirte en las voces de Bolivia a través de los podcasts. ¡Sintoniza nuestro programa de radio en Archipel y descubre un mundo de historias, reflexiones y sonidos!


REVEIL will embark on its 11 loop around the sun on Saturday 4th of May at 5am UTC+1 and will complete its journey on Sunday the 5th of May at 6am. Archipel Stations is happy to stream the full broadcast again this year, also live streaming from the sunrise of a garden in Florence, Italy.

Reveil is a collaborative sound and radio project that circles the Earth on live audio streams at daybreak. The last broadcast featured 145 streams from a wide range of environments and situations.

Many streams come from soundcamps: small or very small gatherings in places of ecological and acoustic interest. Last year there were 26 soundcamps in a variety of locations – rural, urban and in between. Reveil will be mixed from a hub at Stave Hill Ecological Park in Rotherhithe, South London, and stations in Tartu, Sunshine Coast, Valparaíso, Chania and additional locations to be announced.

More info and to listen:

Soundcamp 11 is a project of the Soundcamp Cooperative with Stave Hill Ecological Park (TCV) and the Acoustic Commons network: Full Of Noises (Cumbria UK) · Locus Sonus (Aix FR) · Radio CONA (Ljubljana SI) · HMU (Crete GR) · Cyberforest (Tokyo JP).

Streams are part of the live soundmap project operated by Locus Sonus at ESAAIX, Aix-en-Provence. They also come from independent projects and the environmental sound community at

The Reveil main mix will be hosted by Wave Farm in Acra, Upper Hudson Valley, New York, our US broadcast partner since the first edition. Resonance Radio is our long-term UK broadcast partner. The show is carried each year in whole or in part by a netwrok of participating FM and net radio stations to be announced.

Archipel e.V is a small arts and culture association registered within the german requirments, according to which we assigned as our main purpose advocating for tolerance in all areas of culture and the concept of international understanding, especially supporting the emancipation of entities that have been pushed to the margins.

In the last months we have watched consecutive war crimes being commited by Israel backlashing Hamas horrendous attentat on October 7th 2023. We have watched powerful governments, in particular the German, support inconditionally and financially an offensive in Palestine that is unjustifiable. We watched hate speech profaned by the mouths of people in charge. We watched hundreds of international human rights organisations desperately denoucing an on-going massacre. We have watched protests, especially in Berlin, that in no way endorsed Hamas - instead mourne and demanded respect to human rights - be violently supressed. We have watched police reinforcement of racial profiling and provocations to the Palestinian, Arab and Muslim communitites living in Berlin. We have watched a quick escalation of discrimitation and ignorant statements about Arabs and Muslims, specially inside schools, from educational staff and school communities. We have watched german art and educational institutions, when at all making public statements, show solidarity to the losses of Israel and silence about what is happening in Palestine. We confirm a complex set of silencing mechanisms at play against those that are critical of mainstream narratives.

Hereby we publicly declare our devastation about this situation and that we do not agree with the ways the German government and the German cultural and academic circuit has acted so far. We are disapointed and specially revolted by the discrepancy between all the decolonial discourse that has permeated the arts - a staging in which all members of our organisation have acted upon - and the general retraction to a brutal scenario that blows up the main injustices and power inequalities decolonization fights against. We understand there are many mechanisms for silencing at play, still, we cannot accept the submission to this oppression of speech and criticism. We call specially the german voices to work out through their reasons not to speak up and use their locus of speech that is of particular relevance to the injustices exploding in the last months and to the extreme-right agenda that is taking over more and more space.

We would like also to call attention to the many ways in which this current crisis reinforce mechanisms of polarization and separation between people all over the world. Archipel will put its efforts in maintaing its open channel for all voices and contuining to produce spaces of encounter in times of further increase in broken relationships. Inasmusch as we feel we must speak out against the current upmost injustices, we also need to stay aware of the importance of connectivity and cross-communication in the sight of a large aparatus that is trying to disrupt valuable interpersonal relationships. We want to contribute to free and diverse media environment and foster cultures of listening that produce empathy and respect.


p.s. We keep changing at the beginning of this statment days, for weeks, for months...
