About This Event
Grief is a new project of revolutionary songs by pianist-vocalist-composer Samora Pinderhughes. It speaks truth to power, calling out the sufferings caused by racial capitalism, policing and prison systems, and oppressive ideologies. These are freedom songs, abolitionist songs, and songs that unpack what so many have experienced this past year, while also suggesting pathways for collective response and resistance. Commissioned by Chamber Music America and New Music USA, Grief was filmed for the Voices of Hope festival, conceived by Pinderhughes and directed by filmmaker Christian Padron with engineering by Jack DeBoe, inspired by the black-and-white photography of the legendary Roy DeCarava.
