Every Turner Dances: The Music of Detroit

It’s nearly impossible to think of Detroit, the setting of “The Turner House,” without thinking about its rich music scene. Earlier this month, Aarik Danielsen of the Columbia Daily Tribune, took us on a tour of the sounds of the city, and he played samples of a variety of genres that came out of the Motor City: soul, jazz, hip-hop and rock and roll.

In case you missed it (or if you just want to get lost in some great tunes from Detroit), we’ve shared his playlist here. Enjoy!

“The newly arrived spring – the spots of color, the surprise of birdsong – gave the neighborhood a tumbledown, romantic quality. It reassured Lelah that the ghetto could still hold beauty, and that streets with this much new life could still have good in them.”
~ Angela Flournoy, “The Turner House”

 

Inspired by this year’s One Read selection, we invite Mid-Missouri artists ages 16 and older to contribute works that explore shelter or dwellings of any kind – homes, neighborhoods, families or places that give people or animals refuge.

Cash prizes will be awarded for three winners, courtesy of Columbia’s Office of Cultural Affairs. The third place winner will receive $50, the second place winner $75 and the first place winner $125. First place will also receive a one-year membership to the Columbia Art League. Art will be displayed August 27 through September 22 at Orr Studios with a reception, awards and program on Friday, September 1 at 6 p.m.
