Music Written And Performed By Women Of Color: Sweet Honey In The Rock

Fulani Chant was written by Aisha Kahlil.  I saw Sweet Honey sing live a few weeks ago and Ms. Kahlil said she was inspired to write the song early one morning when she heard birds singing.  During the performance of the song each member had a separate part, but they sang in one accord.  The result was exultant, otherwordly, beautiful, uplifting.  I will never hear birdsong in the morning in quite the same way.
