THE JOY OF DIRECTION
Recently, Abena became Musical Director for the Resistance Revival Chorus. The chorus is a special feature of THE RESISTANCE REVIVAL: A RESTORATION OF FORCE.
From the organizers:
The Resistance Revival is a regular series of musical events where we bring song to life in the spirit of collective joy and resistance. We aim to bring together, in community, a group of diverse artists to join in songs of resistance and protest with the foundation that JOY is an act of resistance! Our movement must be fueled by equal parts protest and culture. The Women's March will host monthly song nights and encourage organizers to hold similar night’s nationally. Music and protest songs have always been a hallmark of the great civil rights movements. We honor this tradition by uplifting these songs and creating new ones for the new resistance.
