this spirited tribute, a group of powerfully-talented women
(hand-picked by Musical Director Tamar-kali) pays homage to a sister
traveler of song through works that Nina Simone wrote, touched, or
transformed during her transcendent career. This presentation makes use
of music to illustrate the fact that, while on the eclectic journey of
the oppressed and self-possessed, Nina Simone followed her heart around
the globe, finding joy, love, frustration, liberation, confusion,
sadness, and hope, often in many different languages.
Co-presented by Lincoln Center and York College/CUNY.
