HIDDEN ASSEMBLAGES is the first album from PHONODELICA in a trilogy highlighting the different sides of the artist's spirituality and sexuality as a queer Egyptian-Palestinian woman of Muslim heritage, both light and dark. This work unpacks the isolation and trauma of Islamophobia in all its forms while critiquing the racism that plagues all Arab and Muslim communities and celebrating the Black-Palestinian solidarity movements.

Phonodelica is Donia Jarrar. See below for full album credits.

Available on cassette for the first time ever! Pro-dubbed on frosted cassettes w/ full color artwork.

Yes, this release comes with a download code.
