FEATURE: Subway Symphonies - Musicians Bring People Together

A piece I contributed to Afro Punk.

A universal language that transcends all walks of life in the world, it speaks to more than your ears, tiptoes into a person’s heart, creeps into the soul and does a spiritual dance. Music is what feelings sound like. It finds ways to rebirth memories, aids with putting the present to rest and has the strength to make the sternest face smile. Heroic harmonies no emperor on this planet has come close to touching, and they’ll be foolish to try. The saying goes; music can calm a beast, which has been proven certain. It calms the largest beast in the world, one of the largest populated cities, New York City! A huge metropolis that is home to millions of people and a getaway for millions more. Where strangers meet daily, with awkward yet friendly smiles, and never meet again. Disconnect is common. This beast of a city filled often with disengaged people is all connected by the underground arteries and overhead railway capillaries that is the MTA NYC subway system. It’s the roaring belly of the beast that all people of the city use for travel, but many times while racing to your next destination you get blessed with music from a subway musician, and it makes you smile, makes you think of a happy place, and sometimes the disconnected, impatient subway rider slows their stride, to take in the rhythm of a drum.

1. Coming to the door to pick someone up.
2. Trying to dress really nicely for a date.
3. Bringing flowers or other tokens of affection to the first date.
4. Going dancing that’s not grinding on a grimy club floor.
5. Straightforwardly asking someone out and not calling it “hanging out.”
6. Additionally, being clear about when you’re “going steady.”
7. Romantic gestures like writing poems.
8. Turning electronics off and just being with one another.
9. The general concept of asking permission for things.
10. Not assuming sex is to be had at any point in time.

"I’m very happy if my words can ever inspire or empower someone who considers themselves an oppressed minority… We are all the same and we all want the same things: the right to be happy, to be just who we want to be and to love who we want to love.” - Beyoncé for OUT Magazine
