Super Slow Way presents Reetu Satar’s film ‘Harano Sur (Lost Tune)’ at Thompson Park in Burnley, as part of the Liverpool Biennial touring programme. The work focuses on the harmonium, a musical instrument that is tightly integrated into the traditional culture of Bangladesh but is in danger of disappearing. The artist uses the sounds of the harmonium as a way to explore the violence and upheaval that has affected Bangladesh.
