Songs of Liberation: Saturday, Feb. 5 | 9pm

by Maggie Molloy
Julius Eastman, Matana Roberts, and Duke Ellington are among this week’s featured artists.

Music is rooted in change: chord change, tempo change, dynamic change. But music can also ignite change.

This Black History Month, we are celebrating the ways in which Black artists continue to shape and enrich American music. On this Saturday’s episode: songs of liberation. From intimate folk songs to sprawling musical manifestos, we’ll explore cutting-edge new music by Black composers—all culminating in a live recording of Julius Eastman’s radical 1973 composition Stay On It.

To listen, tune in to KING FM on Saturday, Feb. 5 at 9pm PT.
