I Woman

Text: Opal Palmer Adisa
Duration: 4:30

Instrumentation: SSAA women's choir; narrator

I Woman is part of a collaboration between myself and Jamaican-born poet, prose writer and storyteller, Opal Palmer Adisa. The piece is written in a celebratory vocal jazz/gospel style, and includes a striking section with spoken word. A narrator speaks one stanza of the poem while the choir sings a bluesy 2-part repeating vamp. Our focus for this work is to “explore female culture with an eye for finding the thread that connects women across racial, class, and political lines.” Adisa
