Rita Dove and Lara Downes (4:43)
Lara Downes: America Again
Detroit Institute of Arts
Downes examines America in these turbulent times through the lens of her own mixed African American and Eastern European background, using a breadth of American music across multiple genres and styles. She calls this music a tribute to the generations of Americans-black and white, men and women, immigrants and pioneers - who have dreamed the impossible, telling the stories of their journeys, loves and longings, hardships and hopes.
