A special, intimate program lovingly put together by three outstanding musicians — Shakura S’Aida, Alexa Belgrave and Andrew Downing. They share over a dozen songs that were either written by or closely associated with Nina Simone and, along the way, engage in insightful dialogue about the power of Simone’s story and what makes her music and music-making so enduringly relevant and deeply beautiful.
