Through much of history the language of women has been told through men, but La Femme turns this narrative upside down. All of these composers share an unrelenting will to be artistic, often in opposition to the societies in which they found themselves. From the very earliest medieval verses by Kassia via the blind virtuoso Maria von Paradis' famed Sicilienne and holocaust victim Ilse Weber's moving Wiegla, to powerful modern statements by the likes of Niloufar Nourbakhsh and Flaka Goranci's own contribution, The Speech of Love- this entire project is dedicated to all creative women in music.
