Self. Reflection.

Season 1 Episode 101 | 26m 46s

Violinist Yvonne Lam and composer/bassist Jordyn Davis share their personal journeys toward finding their voice in the world. Through Lam’s moving solo violin performance of a piece by composer Chen Yi, and Davis’ expression through her own composition inspired by a song by Nina Simone, they paint a clear picture of the self-reflection required by people who are often “othered” by society.
