Samora Pinderhughes and Friends: The Healing Project
Vocalist, pianist, artist and filmmaker Samora Pinderhughes (2019 Creative Capital Awardee) creates large, multi-disciplinary projects, which invite audiences to examine what is visible and what is hidden in our daily lives, and how to make social change. Described as “”…one of the most affecting singer songwriters today, in any genre” by The New York Times, Pinderhughes’ work inspires awe and thought in equal measure.
His Creative Capital project The Healing Project is a searing examination of the prison industrial complex in the United States, amplifying the testimonials of those affected by incarceration, policing, violence and detention through original music and film. Known for carefully crafted songs with striking intimacy and radically honest lyrics, The Healing Project is a palpably empathetic experience, uniting those who have been silenced with storytellers to create deeply affecting art rooted in connectivity and compassion.
