Ani DiFranco on Trump, Her New Memoir, Defying Music Moguls & Working with Pete Seeger and Prince
Episode of
Democracy Now! Video
Legendary Grammy Award-winning songwriter, guitarist and activist Ani DiFranco has published a new memoir, “No Walls and the Recurring Dream,” and joins us for an extended conversation about refusing to bow to the power of record companies, and founding her own music label at age 19 in 1990 called Righteous Babe. She has gone on to release 20 studio albums and sell over 5 million records. Over the years her music has woven together styles ranging from folk to funk, soul to jazz to R&B. She sings of the personal and political, of love, sexuality and loneliness, of sexual abuse and police brutality, and about the perversion of democracy in America. One of the many musicians she worked with, Pete Seeger, once described DiFranco as “the torch bearer for the next generation.” She also discusses Trump, abortion rights and reads a poem she wrote after 9/11.
