DVD-A Lesson with Odetta - Exploring Life, Music and Song

taught by Odetta, interviewed by Dr. Ysaye M. Barnwell

The great singer, actress and human rights activist was one of the most beloved and influential figures in the American folk and blues revival. In this rare and intimate conversation she shares the history, songs and singing technique acquired during a lifetime of experience. She offers her thoughts on vocal style and technique, how she warms up for a concert, choosing a repertoire and how she approaches a song's lyrics. You'll learn how she used her guitar strumming style to build a rhythmic foundation for her songs. Hear her sing powerful a capella renditions of "Motherless Child," "Lay My Burden Down," and "True Believer." With her guitar, she performs "Water is Wide/Gift of Heaven" medley, "Sittin' Here in Limbo," "Hit or Miss" and Cool Water." 75 min.
