WOMEN IN MUSIC
"Joy is an act of resistance"
WHO WE ARE
The Resistance Revival Chorus (RRC) is a collective of more than 60 women, and non-binary singers, who join together to breathe joy and song into the resistance, and to uplift and center women’s voices.
MUSICIANS EXPLORING ACTIVISM AND ACTIVISTS EXPLORING MUSIC
Chorus members are touring musicians, film and television actors, Broadway performers, solo recording artists, gospel singers, political activists, educators, filmmakers, artists, and more, representing a multitude of identities, professions, creative backgrounds, and activist causes. The RRC centers women in music, and addresses how historically marginalized women have been in the music industry.
Written in a time of turmoil and uncertainty on the eve of the 2018 midterm elections. ReSister, Treya Lam is backed by the Resistance Revival Chorus to sing a message which could not be more timely today.
EVERYBODY DESERVES TO BE FREE
Honorary ReSister, Deva Mahal's soulful and much needed song and music video premiered at Biden's live-streamed welcome celebration, kicking off five days of festivities ahead of the historic swearing in of our 46th President and Vice President.

We performed at the Roots Picnic festival in Philadelphia, 2019 as well as two TedX events. The RRC was honored by Auburn Seminary at the Lives of Commitment Awards Benefit in 2018.
