Watch jazz singer-songwriter Carleen Anderson’s video for Grains of Dust, a song about cultural disunity in the US
Soul, gospel and blues are all important for Carleen Anderson, a Texas-born jazz singer. Plus James Brown is her Godfather, and Amy Winehouse was a big fan.
Grains of Dust, written for the project Occupation: Five songs that shook the world, is about the frightening lack of unity between different cultures or ‘tribes’ in the US.
Occupation was co-commissioned by the Welsh National Opera and The Space. Find out more at www.occupation.org.uk.
