Dear Friends of White Snake Projects:

We hope that you’re all safe and well as we do our part with social distancing. At this point, it’s impossible to tell when this great trial will be over. WSP has postponed our second SING OUT STRONG concert tour – Sing Out Strong: DeColonized Voices – from May to September, even as we’re planning a virtual world premiere of the concert for May 13. Stay tuned for how to be in the audience and participate in this world premiere!

We’re proud to introduce you to the writers and composers of Sing Out Strong: DeColonized Voices, who come from all over the world, reflecting the diversity of America, and Boston in particular. They bring with them the music and stories of the Nipmuc Tribe of Massachusetts, Cape Verde, Hong Kong, the Dominican Republic, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Vietnam, Haiti, the Chickasaw Nation of Oklahoma, and the multicultural melting pot of heritages in the United States. They come from diverse socio-economic, age, gender, and racial backgrounds. Some are professional musicians, some are high school students. But all are activists who believe that music and storytelling have the power to change lives.

Learn more about the SOS: DeColonized Voices writers and composers and read the lyrics to their songs.

Be safe, be well, in love and health,

Cerise and the WSP team
