MFA PRESENTS: A Conversation with CHARBELLE
We talked to singer-songwriter CHARBELLE about psy-ops, decentralization & collaboration in a time of unprecedented division.
This interview is part of a series discussing mandates, restrictions and censorship on art and music — read more of these interviews here.
We had a lovely conversation last week with e.m. ricchini — a writer, musician, prolific twitter shit poster and extremely fashionable lady. She is releasing a new track each month throughout 2023 under the moniker CHARBELLE.
Listen to the latest here:
We discussed surviving the culture wars, moving to a rural area and getting canceled for supporting the truckers. Enjoy!
