Blues & Roots is an album by Charles Mingus, recorded in 1959 and “it’s an album that I have returned to time and again. I picked it up once more when I decided to work on a self-initiated graphic design project; I applied a contemporary language, stemming from my tools and visual literacy, to create an image for the consumption of music from 1959, in the present” tell us Sijya.
