Can You See Me? (Hands in the Air)
Lady A (a.k.a. Alicia Saldenha)
(Official Music Video: https://youtu.be/NC6kz51TD9w)
The song is an indictment of the police brutality constantly claiming the lives of black and brown people in the United States and around the world. The subtitle, Hands in the Air, references the online protest movement born after the 2014 police shooting of Michael Brown, an 18 year-old African American, killed while unarmed and with his hands raised.
Alicia Saldenha, born in the Caribbean twin-island Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, is well-known as a jazz, soul and funk singer in Japan, with two albums, Rose (with indigo jam unit) and Dance with the Sun (her solo project) under her belt. She is also the producer and presenter of the music podcast, VibeOlogy, on Blackan Radio, Japan.
Can You See Me? (Hands in the Air) launches the Lady A Project, featuring Saldenha's edgier side, original rap, electronic music and Caribbean dance music, which she calls TDM or Tropical Electronic Dance Music.
Can You See Me? (Hands in the Air) is a protest song as well as a call for solidarity across borders in fighting racism, institutionalized discrimination and hatred.
