Music Adds March 1, 2019

By March 1, 2019 No Comments
Though added last week, I wanted to spotlight again Our Native Daughters, a collaboration of
Rhiannon Giddens, Amythyst Kiah, Leyla McCalla, & Allison Russell, who have a new album on Smithsonian Folkways that “shines new light on African-American women’s stories of struggle, resistance, and hope,” tackling elegantly and deeply topics of slave narratives and early minstrelsy while expertly taking fresh ownership of the American folk tradition. “With unflinching, razor-sharp honesty, they confront sanitized views about America’s history of slavery, racism, and misogyny from a powerful, black female perspective.” A must-listen!
