About me
I'm a UK-based, bilingual writer with a deep passion for the interplay between culture and travel. I believe the best stories often lie off the beaten track - so I veer off the well-trodden routes to write insightful, experiential features on what catches my ear or eye. I want to empower people to explore new sonic, cultural and travel destinations. To look at the world from a fresh angle, with whatever means they have available. In interviews and cover stories over the years, I talked about black acetate with the Velvet Underground's John Cale, boxing with Diana Krall and the Old West with Paul Thomas Anderson, gaining an insider's perspective on the creative process and works that we love. Head on over to www.danaimolocha.com for more career snapshots, and drop me an email for commissions and creative collaborations - or connect with me on LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter.

  • Dig deep into surrealist cinema with five stunning films
    Dig deep into surrealist cinema with five stunning filmsThe strange reality of the lockdown confused us, made us reflect and rethink, and gave us some of the weirdest dreams we’ve ever had. It left us scrambling to put back together the pieces of life’s puzzle. Days and weeks blurred into one another, and our bygone days outdoors suddenly seemed like distant sepia-toned memories. As if life’s new bonkers script had been written by a burgeoning surrealist master.
