How does one approach love - the most commonly addressed topic in Tunisian folklore, as well as the most complex and the most contradictory? Such contradictions provoke the essential anthropological questions: How do we coexist? How do we establish bonds?
Love is a great source of inspiration for poets. It is the voice of the singers, the rhythm of the dancers and a reason to exist for the people. Love is a free space that defies the rules imposed by the system, and oscillates between the overt and the covert. Sometimes we openly declare it and cross the imposed boundaries, only to be abruptly and eloquently silenced...
In Tunisian folklore, love paints the geographical landscapes - from the north to the south - it reflects cultural and historical perspectives, and bears witness to how these evolve over time.
Inkyfada Podcast is the first platform entirely dedicated to original Tunisian podcasts, and was conceived by Inkyfada media in collaboration with the in-house research and development laboratory, InkyLab. Inkyfada joined the global podcast boom in 2017, when the team produced the first Tunisian audio documentary, diving deep into the belly of the El Kamour struggle taking place in the desert. Since then, Inkyfada Podcast has produced a wide variety of documentaries, investigations, and podcast series, as well as articles accompanied by music; covering a multitude of contemporary issues in order to offer an immersive and alternative podcast experience. Whilst exclusively offering audio content, the Inkyfada Podcast team upholds the same core values and principles of inkyfada.com, and is committed to producing high quality content though a dynamic and meticulous production process. In addition to the permanent team, Inkyfada podcast works closely with various journalists, artists, illustrators, musicians and other content creators in order to diversify the platform and support artistic creativity. These podcasts differ from traditional radiophonic content in that the applied production and editing process is more akin to cinematographic techniques, in addition to being web-based, downloadable and accessible on demand. Additionally, Inkyfada Podcast uniquely offers subtitles in French, Arabic and English for all audio content, the majority of which is recorded in Tunisian or in the preferred language of the speaker in question.
