    Topsify

    In honor of Juneteenth and Black Music Month, Rhiannon Giddens is the guest on the latest episode of Topsify's BLK in America podcast. She talks with host Dr. Maurice Stinnett about growing up Black in America and share some songs that inspire her. "It was my discovery of the music of North Carolina and what sort of became my life's mission that helped me figure out my identity," Giddens says. "The more that we know about what we have gone through as a people, the more that we know about all the different levels and the layers and all of the complexities about what we've gone through as a people, the more than we can be accepting of everyone's experience of being Black in America." You can watch their conversation, followed by a playlist Giddens put together for the discussion here:

    Composer, singer, and instrumental polymath Ben LaMar Gay's new album, Open Arms to Open Us, is due November 19 on International Anthem / Nonesuch Records. Living up to NPR's claim that "there is no one universe for Ben LaMar Gay, he just sonic booms from one sound to another," he interweaves jazz, blues, ballads, R&B, raga, new music, nursery rhyme, Tropicália, two-step, hip-hop, and beyond in his most colorful and communicable work yet, an expression of his signature omni-genre, "Pan-Americana" brew. You can watch the video for the track "Sometimes I Forget How Summer Looks on You," featuring OHMME, here.
