    Rhiannon Giddens: "O Death"

    Rhiannon Giddens performs "O Death," from They're Calling Me Home, her 2021 album with Francesco Turrisi. The video features illustrated vignettes of a story about death painted by Maeve Clancy, an Irish crankie roll artist. Giddens explains, “Crankies are a pre-electricity technology that pair a visual narrative, usually painted on a long piece of paper or cloth, 'cranked' by hand to the timing of the song.”
