Cauleen Smith The Wanda Coleman Songbook Limited-Edition Vinyl

The Wanda Coleman Songbook is an immersive video installation that enlists scent, sight, and sound to explore the multidimensional depth of poems by Wanda Coleman (1946– 2013). Coleman was widely considered the unofficial poet laureate of Los Angeles, and her work guided Smith‘s reacquaintance with the city after a sixteen-year absence. 

This limited-edition two-color vinyl 12-inch EP features commissioned contributions by Kelsey Lu, Shala Miller, Moor Mother and Aquiles Navarro, Meshell Ndegeocello, Jeff Parker and Ruby Parker, Alice Smith, and Jamila Woods and Standing on the Corner.
