midweek music: “Cry No More”

A new version of “Cry No More,” a song Rhiannon Giddens wrote in 2015 in response to a massacre by white supremacists at a South Carolina church, redone five years later and released the day after the president of the United States publicly proclaimed himself to be a gleeful ally of white supremacists.

This new version with an amazing cast of musicians, as well as a dancer, is beyond haunting, beyond brilliant, beyond tragic.
