Baltimore-based composer Judah Adashi releases track, 'Rise (Invocation),' in honor of Freddie Gray

"On Sunday, April 19, 2015, my piece "Rise" was premiered in Washington, DC. A collaboration with the poet Tameka Cage Conley, the work bears witness to our country's fraught civil rights journey from Selma to Ferguson and beyond. The morning of the performance, a young Black man named Freddie Gray died of severe injuries sustained while in Baltimore Police custody.


 track available for $1 ***All proceeds go directly to the family of Freddie Gray, and will be used to cover medical and burial costs.*** 

This track is the Invocation that opens "Rise." The same music returns in the fifth movement, called for by Dr. Cage Conley's words: "A horn tells us, / a brother has fallen, again..." I share it here as a lament, a prayer, and a call to action, for Freddie Gray and for Baltimore.
