Sounds of Freedom, $16.20
Sounds of Freedom brings together some of the country's best-known musicians to share their thoughts on spirituality and social change. Laurie Anderson, The Indigo Girls, Michael Franti, Michelle Shocked, and Phillip Glass along with other musicians from a wide range of genres discuss their motivation and commitment to peace, justice and happiness.
Never before have such a variety of recording artists -- from Hip-Hop to punk rock to jazz to classical -- appeared together in a single forum to openly discuss their experiences with social change and spiritual growth. Vietnamese Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh writes the foreword to the collection of interviews that invite everyone to realize their own potential for experiencing peace and encourage social change.
The interviews are conducted by John Malkin, a journalist and musicians who has produced a weekly radio program for eight years called The Great Leap Forward. His work has been published by Shambhala Sun, Tricycle, Z Magazine, and CNN.
