gina talks about the grief work that she currently does as being rooted in her people's histories of keening and wailing/as a way to move grief...grief being sometimes distant, sometimes intimate, and sometimes lineages old. gina says sound has helped her turn, dive into and surrender to the waves of grief - feeling it - as a way to release it. gina says, "I am deeply and profoundly interested in your freedom." With that in mind, she asks herself what is the sound that will set you free, what is the sound that will bring you back to yourself, your body and the absolute miracle of the cells in your blood/and what runs through that. gina says that all the work that she does is ritual. If you have ever experienced gina's Work, you know the truth of that.
