Sound Note:
Brotherly Love & Sisterly Affection
​by Dyana Williams

Re-PLACE-ing Philadelphia is building an expanded archive of cultural memory that includes multiple histories, re-place-ing the established with new narratives and understandings. Notes from invited artists and community members consider place via the street, sound, food, trees, and other portals. 

Dyana Williams, Radio Personality Old School 100.3 & President of The Philadelphia Chapter of the Recording Academy aka The GRAMMYs, share her Philly playlist.

 

These ten tunes feel like Brotherly Love & Sisterly Affection (with high regard for our fellow citizens and our city). They articulate the energy and spirit of Philadelphia.
