Sxip Shirey & Rhiannon Giddens – "All Babies Must Cry"

Sxip Shirey & Rhiannon Giddens – "All Babies Must Cry" (Weekly Music Roundup)

The New York composer, sound artist, and songwriter Sxip Shirey (Luminescent Orchestrii) has teamed up with the Grammy and Macarthur winning singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rhiannon Giddens to release a song called β€œAll Babies Must Cry.” Shirey wrote the song many years ago as a simple folk song, and as a response to the legend that the baby Jesus never cried. Now, he and Giddens present it as a protest to the separation of immigrant children and parents on our southern border. "All Babies Must Cry," by Sxip Shirey and Rhiannon Giddens aims to raise funds for RAICES, the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services. The song and its video are part of our Weekly Music Roundup. Donations accepted HERE.
