Music plays a part in almost everyone's life. Whether it be listening to it, singing, playing instruments or dancing.
Leah Abramson is someone who knows how important music can be. Putting energy into playing music during challenging times in her life has helped her stay grounded.
In addition to recording her own work, in recent years Leah has been working with women in prison on various music projects. This work inspired her to make a short documentary about the importance of music to women in prison and to record some of their songs.
Leah Abramson shares her documentary (including several pieces by women recorded inside prison) as well as her reflections on working on music with women in prison.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
