About Episode 3:

The word ‘song’ is used by poets, musicians and ornithologists alike. So, what makes the “song” a song? The language? The melody? The warbling? Something else?

This third episode of the Listening Club is in the form of a songbook — an anthology of recorded songs, many of which may not sound like it to you or me. Warning: some of this music may evoke strong emotions, bring about laughter and/or tears.

About the Listening Club series:

Created by Gustavo Matamoros, the Listening Club is a series of listening experiences curated for the stimulation of the sound mind: the mind with which we listen. The 2022 season is in four parts and makes its Coral Gables debut in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Books and Books.
