“노래, Canción, Bài hát, गीत, 歌曲, ترانه, 歌, เพลง, երգ, song ...” is a community jukebox or mixtape. Mothers from Los Angeles’ communities of color sing songs they love for this mix. I called them on the phone and they shared stories about who they are and what change means. Their song-stories have been recorded on these phone calls.

Hyunch Sung (she, her, hers) is an artist and urbanist living in the East Bay, currently designing landscapes for permanent affordable housing and transitional housing at Mithun San Francisco. She has worked with and learned from LGBTQ youth, the unhoused community, and formerly unjustly incarcerated women. She believes that memory, feelings, and idiosyncrasy are good justifications for design and enjoying KBBQ. She is interested in translation as both a pragmatic and imaginative tool for cultural storytelling and listening within communities, between individuals, and within our occasionally vast selves. Cultural synaesthesia is the heightened experience of the immigrant and other faceted identities. She received her B.A. in Literature & Film Theory from Amherst College, and her M.L.A. from Rhode Island School of Design. She is a visiting critic at U.C. Berkeley LAEP, Cal Poly Pomona, and Rhode Island School of Design.
