It really feels like we’ve been in quarantine forever due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and we’ve had to adjust to separation and distance, everywhere in the world. Musical artists are no different, but they have a further struggle in that their very livelihood is affected because they’re unable to perform live in public. But thankfully, musicians are very resourceful, and with that comes a lot of hope as well. Singer, songwriter, and guitarist, Dos Floris, is determined not to let enforced separation get to her, and instead has collaborated with other musicians, as well as members of the general public. Her new single, ‘All In It Together’, sees a 40 person band come together over a video link-up, comprising independent musicians she’s met over time, as well as the public.
You’ll know the phrase, ‘The Revolution Will Not Be Televised’, but you might not know it’s the title of a poem by Gil Scott-Heron, who published it nearly 50 years ago, in 1971.

Inspirational to all who believe in the freedom of political expression, it has found a particular meaning for NOLA Resistance, who have been fighting the good fight for many years now. Artists, activists, and musicians, they have put their own spin on the poem, updating it – and quite rightfully so – in their latest single.
