“In our struggle, songs are not simply entertainment for us. They are the way we communicate” – Miriam Makeba

10 August 1920, Mamie Smith walked into a recording studio in New York and made history by recording the first Blues song.  100 years on, women are still singing of their lived experience through The Blues.

Weaving together song and spoken word, Jacqui Wicks examines the impact of early blues music on women hearing it for the first time, how do they connect to 100-year-old narratives … does it speak of their lived experience, who has the right to sing The Blues.

Advisory – Mild references to sex, addiction, violence, abuse, poverty, grief and suicide.
