The Caged Bird Sings

$16.00
Released: 
August 2015

This special release was created in reaction to the overwhelming demand for a recording of our concerts entitled, "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings," performed in Arizona and Minnesota in February 2015. The music is a collection of pieces from cultures that historically have been oppressed, including Estonians, Native Americans and African Americans. While shedding light on the human condition, the music simultaneously celebrates the deeply rooted spirit of survival and hope. This album was funded by the generous support of individuals from around the world through Indiegogo.com. Thank you to all of our friends and fans that gave this album wings!

Release date: August 3, 2015
