Women raise their voices beyond the bars: Women's music in prison| August 9, 2011
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.
