Episode 1: Blues women, musical affect, and feminism
We all know that different kinds of music can make us feel different kinds of feelings. But how do musicians use sound to create different moods and emotions? In this episode we’ll explore how the Blues queens of the 1920s used musical affect to express themselves and stand up for Black women. Singer-songwriter Sonya Jevette show us how to use musical affect in songs, and helps us understand what it means to be a feminist today.
