CATALIJNE covers ✧ Strange Fruit
”Strange Fruit ✧ Such a beautiful, grasping, suffocating, honest, heartfelt song and story to pass along. Abel Meeropol’s poem and Billie Holiday’s performance kept history alive with this piece of art.
For those who don’t know this song and the story behind it, please, please read below. It’s not an easy listening song. It’s a heartfelt story.
For me personally? It’s their story, but even so, a general story about power, inequality and injustice which we still face today. Why? Why not live together, as equals, as friends, in harmony…
I just can’t get my mind around that.
