Inda’s Corner 21: The Day the World Turned Day Glo (1978)

 

I’m a music junkie. And therefore, I wanted to focus on what means most to me in this world as I reflect on the year of my birth. While when it comes to older music, classics and such, I gravitate more to the 60s, the 70s had some great things going for it music-wise. And yes I include disco and the burgeoning electronic dance music scene that would grow from underground scenes in Chicago, Detroit, and the wider Midwest throughout the 80s.

This week we have tracks from Esperanza Spalding, Tara Lily, and Roses Gabor. Our throwback segment pays tribute to our now dearly departed poet/playwright/novelist/badass, etc. who helped many Black girls find their voices on the stage and the page. We’re celebrating Blackgirl legacies.

Inda’s Corner 20: Random Thoughts on Sandra, Solange, and Terence… and Creativity

I can’t help but let my mind wander that afternoon. I need noise. Sometimes any background noise will do, and as much as I like podcasts and music, it’s relatively easy to find background noise. But on this Sunday afternoon while you need noise to deep condition your hair, you’re all out of podcasts on your podcatcher. So for some reason, you decide to listen to an album you’ve only listened to once before and found it actually pretty good. I go into my music library and cue up Solange’s A Seat at the Table.
