But Then 00:07
With lyrics from El Huerfanito / The Orphan A traditional Mexican huapango It’s the most precious pearl / The mother over the earth The mother over the earth / Is the most precious pearl It’s a very painful sorrow / For the one that doesn’t have one Where are you, loving mother? / Who could give you life again?”

Herida Abierta De Las Frontera - Corrido, by Abel Rocha Vivo la agonia de la espera En esta fria prision Sin mi mama y mi papa Se muere mi corazon Las luces siempre encendidas Que me prohiben dormir Con lo que llaman comida Milagro es sobrevivir Soy un nino en desamparo De mis padres separado Vivo en mi ser el abuso Sin ternura vivo yo, condenado En pleno siglo veintiuno Mas de cien anos cantando Sigue el Corrido cantando Mil penas e infortunios Canto a la Revolucion Y al pueblo trabajador Los que mueren en la raya De hambre, frio o de calor Vuela vuela palomita Vuela y cruza la frontera Ve y dile al que no lo entienda Que es duro, dejar tu tierra En Guatemala y Honduras Aun Mexico y Salvador Donde no se vive paz Y solo reina el terror Democracias destruidas Intervencuon militar Crimen organizado Solo quedan inmigrantes Y miles de refugiados Sueno mi America libre Y no un sueno americano Y condenado a la huida Sin ningun Derecho Humano Senores ya me despido Cantando esta cancion Hay quienes viven tragedias Y quienes cantan su horror Vuela vuela gorrioncillo Vuela para aquella higuera Esto va para los niños Que lloran en la Frontera.
La Bruja 05:05
In the fertile lands of Campeche Mexico A Mayan woman named Leydy Pech transformed into the Queen of Beekeepers, defying the grim reaper Hiding behind Monsanto’s plans To zone and to clone a moaning monoculture To poison the magic land It was the beekeepers who de-FIED the grim reaper Hiding behind Monsanto’s plans To clone and to hone a devilish tone In the heart of the honeycomb Power to the pollinators! Mother Father Earth Cre-A-tors Leydy Pech oh please Let us love the bees --------- She gathered el pueblo, the lawyers and the farmers, the wise Mayan elders and the beekeepers’ daughters Her love for life and defending the land Fueled the fight and powered the witness stands With the forces of nature coursing through their hands Pollinate the Revolution! Fertile thoughts to grow sol-U-tions The bee connection, honey’d hands Sustain our cultures and the lands -------------------- KAZOO SOLO So many brave souls quelled Monsanto’s monopoly, replacing Mono with many, and poison with plenty Now they’re feeding the forests, the fields are filled with local seed, And those beloved bees fly all around as they please It was the beekeepers who defied the grim reaper Hiding behind Monsanto’s plans To clone and to hone a devilish tone In the heart of the honeycomb Power to the pollinators! Mother Father Earth Creators Leydy Pech oh please Let us love the bees ----- love the bees------- love the bees -----


During the worldwide COVID-19 Pandemic, two powerful ensembles joined forces in Seattle Washington in late 2020 to research and create the history of the role of women in culture.

Written and directed by Madeleine Sosin, MUJER O BRUJA? takes us on a journey inspired by partnership societies of the Paleolithic Era, revealing the advent of the Dominator Systems and organized religion, and looking towards a balanced future.

The musicians in Correo Aereo duo and the all-women Tiptons Sax Quartet developed ideas and compositions with digital technologist Jing ‘Jude’ Dai for a full year during the pandemic. The group developed the piece in 2021 by video conference and met in Seattle In October 2021 for a 2-week creative residency. where they honed, rehearsed and premiered.

MUJER O BRUJA’s world premiere was a co-production of Wayward Music and the Earshot Jazz Festival in Seattle on October 22/23, 2021 at the Chapel Performance Space in the Good Shepherd Center.

The ensemble went on to record and mix the audio at Stone Gossard’s Studio LITHO in Seattle.
