Nite Jewel

Under the Radar Presents: “Why Not Both” Podcast Featuring Nite Jewel

Sep 03, 2020

Welcome to Why Not Both Wednesdays. Every week, in partnership with the Why Not Both podcast, we’ll be presenting new podcast episodes that explore how multiple passions inform the inspiring lives of musicians, writers, actors, and creatives.

At the beginning of Los Angeles lockdown, we virtually sat down for a chat with Nite Jewel, aka Ramona Gonzalez, to talk about all things musical, educational, societal, and revolutionary. As a musician and music production instructor pursuing her PhD in ethnomusicology, Ramona commented on how our desire for the mythology of artists is crumbling in the face of the reality of our multifaceted and often oppressive experiences within Western culture. More than ever, artists need support and stability as well as acknowledgement of their vibrant humanity to keep creating the works we love.

For updates, be sure to follow Why Not Both on Instagram and Twitter. For previous episodes, including HANA, White Sea, and Ioanna Gika, hit up our plethora of listening options.

For more from Ramona, be sure to swing by the Nite Jewel Instagram and Twitter. She’s got a deep bench of music, and is widely considered to be the originator of chillwave—so scoop up her back catalogue at Bandcamp.
