Dias Novita Wuri’s playlist for her novella “Birth Canal”

“If I can be very honest with you, I never pay that much attention to the lyrics of songs, which is kind of ironic considering that I am a woman of letters. I am drawn to atmosphere first and foremost. It is also my approach in writing—rather than plot, I focus on emotions and feelings, the atmosphere of things. I rely on music to help me build this atmosphere.”
