This album pays tribute to the song “Amazon Woman Rise,” written by Maxine Feldman in 1976 and performed as the unofficial official opening song at the festival every year! This disc has the reggae version of the song, the dub version, an acoustic version featuring Judith Casselbery and Holly Near, a salsa version featuring members of Cocomama and the original version by Maxine. A powerful spoken word piece by Staceyann Chin and an instrumental version of the song complete this amazing album! Proceeds go to the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival and the Lesbian Herstory Archives. .
