It just feels hard to breathe these days. So Pesach comes just in time. What can help most of all in the effort to catch your breath is the familiar -- ritual, family/friends, and the chance to think about the pressure on your lungs in new ways. Many of us will add new Haggadot and new ideas to these elements of Pesach, but in the end, the festival will hopefully be a time to breathe. As we do so, we need music to help ensure we can continue to breathe throughout Pesach, and beyond. So for this playlist, we choose all artists of color – African-American, African, Arab, and Asian – whose music speaks of the difficulty of breathing in our society (in a couple of cases, literally focusing on the phrase “I Can’t Breathe”) and the relief that comes when you can.
