A tribute to Allen Lomax's rediscovery of African-American prisoners’ songs in the Southern US in the ’20s, focused on the rhythm of their inhuman forced labors. Betty communicates the emotion, suffering and hope of these slave songs with perfect intensity, using an amalgam of blues, soul, funk, electronica and rock delivered in her extraordinary voice.
