Why do people need to be free?
Yet to ponder it is to touch down on the human side of political struggle.
Consider one thing freedom makes possible, for example: intimacy.
Turrisi soon follows on the frame drum.
There is No Other continues its explorations of heartfelt exchange and private longing in ways similar to, yet distinct from, her other recent work.
Giddens sets “Brown Baby” in an arrangement with subtle Arabic flourishes that casts light on the many different brown children facing oppression now.
Her own compositions here explore different kinds of intimacy.
There, this album dwells: in the quiet times where people live fully with each other.
