This week’s download comes from Jamila Woods and her latest album “LEGACY!LEGACY!” You have seven days to download her song “FRIDA.”
More than just giving the song titles the names of historical black and brown icons of literature, art, and music, Jamila Woods builds a sonic and lyrical monument to the various modes of how these icons tried to push beyond the margins a country had assigned to them.
This July 6 would have been Frida Kahlo’s 112th birthday. On July 6 and 7, Farmhouse Paint & Sip will celebrate Frida’s birthday with Frida Fest.
Frida Fest Milwaukee aims to promote LatinX artists in Southeastern Wisconsin by highlighting the works and writings of the icon Frida Kahlo in a two-day interactive cultural art festival.
