Music & Resiliency with esperanza spalding + interview w/ Novena Carmel | KCRW’s 24 Hours of Serenity
Apr 18 • 7:00 pm(All times are in PDT)
KCRW’s Novena Carmel sits down with esperanza spalding for a chat and a listen to her new album promoting healing.
esperanza spalding is a being who has grown to recognize love in the abstract and aspirational, and is now fully dedicated to learning how she can serve and embody actualized love through honor for and receptivity to, fellow humans, teachers, and practitioners of various regenerative arts. She continues experimenting with music as an aide for healing, with the release of three songs from her forthcoming album: AVAILABLE AT SONGWRIGHTSAPOTHECARYLAB.COM. Each song in the “TRIANGLE” suite is designed to have a unique yet related affect to benefit the listener, intended to relieve the tension, grief, and isolation experienced while being home-bound during this global pandemic. This suite was composed via consultation with practitioners from various disciplines, including: music-therapy, neuroscience, Black American music, Sufism, South Indian Carnatic music, and her students and colleagues at Harvard.
