For The Women

March 30, 2018

Here it is. Song n°3. 

 

I had already started writing a few words about a year ago and I had some pieces of melody in my mind....but for some reason I had put them on the side.

 

Then in light of everything that has been happening lately, especially in the US (the Harvey Weinstein scandal which resulted in giving a voice to so many silenced women; and more recently the March For Our Lives movement led by the young Emma Gonzalez), I felt it was the right time to take these words out of my drawers and write a full song. 

 

I just wanted to celebrate strong-willed women.

The first one being undoubtedly my mum :) 


But my very first thought for the song was of Rosa Parks. A famous civil rights activist in the US. A woman who, because she didn't back down, changed the story.

And being French, our very own Simone Veil, amongst other French women, was also an inspiration to me. 

 

I wrote the song from the point of view of an old lady telling her story and encouraging younger women to stand up for themselves. So it does resonate quite a lot at the moment.

 

But there are so many remarkable and inspiring women out there, past and present, working hard to change things that I just wanted to write a song about them.

 

You can download/listen to the song on my Bandcamp page : www.djanagabrielle.bandcamp.com

 

Or stream it on YouTube as well.

 

The artwork has been created by my dear friend Essi Kimpimaki

I am lucky to be surrounded by so many talented women in my life and she perfectly illustrated the song. 

 

Hope you enjoy it :)
