Today we’re taking a bit of a departure. John Diliberto talks with with electronic musician Vonavi. That in itself isn’t a departure. We interviewed him 3 years ago. But this new Interview took place at 8PM Ukraine time on Monday, February 28th. Vonavi was at home, with fighting going on just outside his city of Zaporizhzhia. He was sitting in the darkness of blackout and waiting for the next round of air raid sirens. We talk about his experience during the Russian invasion.
