Description
"At a sparrow’s urging, a young girl feels a mysterious trembling in her arms, a lightness in her feet, a longing to be free. Her mother tells her that her Granny Liza experienced the same, as did many of their people before her. Perhaps it’s time, Mama says, to slip the bonds of earth and join the journey started long ago.

Drawing on lyrics from the song 'We Could Fly' by Rhiannon Giddens and Dirk Powell, which in turn draw on a heritage of African folklore, this [is an] incantatory dialogue between a mother and daughter
