Women have always sung and played traditional music: music that grew and flourished in traditional communities since the beginning of time. Although often unrecognized and often oppressed, these women played a vital part in preserving and in advancing musical traditions, and they insisted on being heard.

This presentation will show, in photos, audio, and video some of these women and the communities in which they lived and from which they drew their strength. Many of them had a profound influence on me.
