Songs of the Living Amsterdam created by Toshi Reagon

Toshi Reagon & BigLovely Band

Toshi (Singer, Composer, Musician, Curator, Producer) is a multi-talented and versatile singer, composer, musician, with a profound ear for sonic Americana—from folk to funk, from blues to rock. While her expansive career has landed her at Carnegie Hall, the Paris Opera House and Madison Square Garden, you’ll just as easily find Toshi turning up at a music festival to a local club.

Songs of the Living

Toshi Reagon created Songs of the Living as a way to center coming together, signing, and gathering with different creative expressions to find alignment with our living world. The musical experience draws inspiration from Octavia E. Butler’s “Parable of the Sower,” set in the year 2024. The novel prompts contemplation of “Technology of the Living”: the profound idea that we are the predecessors of the machines we engineer, setting the precedent for them.

As we grapple with the implications of AI on our lives, the legacy of The Parables Experience serves as a guiding light for the mission of Songs of the Living. This transformative event highlighted the importance of creating spaces for solidarity, where individuals can come together and ideas can thrive. From these critical dialogues emerges the Songs of the Living experience.

Are you ready to be part of this experience?

Songs of the Living extends an invitation to actively engage in the movement to reclaim the internet, aligning with our physical world, environment, and humanity. This invitation encourages exploration and centering your humanity in an age of advancing technology. In partnership with Toshi Reagon, Songs of the Living, is a musical experience blooming from a musical collaboration of local artists. Attendees will have the chance to experience our musical journey firsthand, adding another dimension to MozFest House Amsterdam.
