Music Mondays: Songstresses

Three women singers tonight. First, via Martin in the Margins, the sadly departed and truly great Cesaria Evora.

Second, via Mike Killingworth, Maria Farantouri, socialist and anti-fascist, performing “Asma Asmaton” (Song of Songs). The first of four songs of the “Ballad of Mauthauzen”, a set of songs inspired by the experiences in the Mauthauzen death camp.

Third, via Mike Killingworth, via Jams O’Donnell: Mari Boine, Sami ant-racist.
