Welcome to April 🙂 ZUMIX just held it’s annual ‘Walk for Music!’ and it was a real success, walking through Eastie and highlighting the need for music and arts programming, many joined in and walked proudly! This month we have a themed staff picks aka ‘Walk Tall’. Take a listen to the picks right below.
“Walk With Me” by Ras G feat. KhaiLL Sadiq
“Walk with me, take a stroll through the galaxy” – For me this song expresses peace and existential understanding, which are great feelings to walk down the street with.” – Jake Gilman, Events Coordinator
“Aussi Fort” by Féfe
” “Aussi Fort,” roughly translates to “As Strong”; from the lyrics, through the arrangement, and video, this song is a testament to tenacity.” – Ed Emerson, Creative Tech Manager
“Countdown” by Beyoncé
“In honor of the release of Homecoming, I have been exclusively listening to Beyoncé for the past 4 days straight (for real). This song is so upbeat and such a joyous expression of love!” – Sarah Saydun, Pathways Coordinator
“Put a Light On” by Generationals
“This song makes me feel like I’m in a claymation cartoon staring a peppy young man with very long legs and swinging arms and hair that moves wildly. It’s sunny and colorful. In it I am connected to my planet and my city, living in perfect synchronicity as the bees and flowers dance around me. I walk taller as I listen.” – Nikala Peroni, Development & Communications Associate
“Rock & Roll” by Velvet Underground
“She started shaking to that fine fine music, you know her life was saved by rock & roll… and it was alright”!” – Avi Salloway, Z-Tech Live Sound Coordinator
“Death Row” by Ashton Travis
“Spacey and open, this track is refreshing to listen to over and over again. I can put one step in front of another and hover over the sidewalk with just hearing the vibes on this track.” – Rene Dongo, Radio Station Manager
“You Make My Dreams” by Daryl Hall & John Oates
“Puts a pep in my step.” – Julianna Quiroz, Events Staff
