This month we explore why we are instinctively drawn to water, touching upon the themes of healing, restoration and travel. We visit leading Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes’ coast-inspired new exhibition and head to Mallorca to meet the couple behind the label Accidente con Flores. Plus: we sit down with Malian singer-songwriter Fatoumata Diawara to talk about her life and her new album, ‘London Ko’.
