Soundtractivism: gypsy cab dispatch

Over at gypsy cab dispatch, Eric T. Campbell (a reporter for The Michigan Citizen by day) composes music under the name, Guy Mingo by night. He describes his innovative soundtractivism as “an attempt to feature voices of the oppressed in a musical context accompanied by political commentary. The corporate raiders are closing in on America’s last chocolate city as we speak– there should be no shortage of material.”

We’ll be posting samples from Mingo as they arrive, like this one on the organizing emerging inside Detroit Public Schools.
