2017 :: SONG OF THE YEAR
A song of civil endurance and victory, “Deathless” is a triumphant statement for 2017 and beyond. Lisa-Kaindé and Díaz team up with Kamasi Washington to give us a “We Shall Overcome” or “Mississippi Goddam” for a new generation and a new iniquity. It stands with as much stately grace as those classic songs of protest. Washington’s saxophone flourishes act as wails, cries, underscoring the sadness underlying the courage of the track.
