Transmission #23: Sonics of the Divine
Santigold, Agnes Obel and Carla del Forno all feature in King Britt’s musical tribute to his favorite artists who happen to be women.
King Britt wanted to create something unique for Women’s History Month. First he selected a wide variety of music by women artists to help illustrate “all sides of the power of the divine feminine.” Packed inside these 60 minutes vulnerable hip-hop by Madame Gandhi rubs shoulders with Laurel Halo’s avant-pop stylings, as well as Tune-Yards’ trip-hop mode and blurry-eyed folk by Carmen Villain. Tying these disparate moments together are brief but thought-provoking interviews with King’s friends Pia Ercole, Ladybug Mecca and Xenia Rubinos, who offer their thoughts about the power of music. Sit back and enjoy as Philadelphia’s sonic chameleon demonstrates how the past, present and future are all female.
