    The second part of a triptych on grief and mourning, the solo Do You Know This Song? evokes a past that is still trying to engage with the present. In this new creation, Mallika Taneja explores her own family history in search of a forgotten song and the memories associated with it. In this process of introspection, she questions those around her and discovers a song and a voice that have remained engraved in the memories of those who heard it. How can this voice and this song help her to unearth the past and rekindle this memory? Using a panoply of objects, dolls, a harmonium and a microphone, the artist reactivates the stories and testimonies she has collected to reconnect with this voice and rediscover the melody of this forgotten song.
