Performance of “We Shall Be Known” by The Thrive Choir and MaMuse
For several years, we’ve closed out Bioneers’ keynotes with beauty and grace with performances by The Thrive Choir, an Oakland-based singing group affiliated with Thrive East Bay, a purpose-driven community focused on personal and social transformation. They are composed of a diverse group of vocalists, artists, activists, educators, healers, and community organizers directed by musicians Austin Willacy and Kyle Lemle.
“We Shall Be Known” was written by MaMuse (Sarah Nutting and Karisha Longaker), a 12-year old musical duo rooted in folk and gospel traditions who have released 5 albums. The women of MaMuse play a wide range of acoustic instruments and are known for their social engagement, uplifting spirit, haunting harmonies, and deeply resonant, life-affirming lyrics.
The Thrive Choir joined MaMuse for this special performance of “We Shall Be Known” at the 2020 Bioneers conference.
