Nobuko Miyamoto - "What Time is It on the Clock of the World" [Official Audio]
Listen to the official audio for "What Time is It on the Clock of the World," the first single off Nobuko Miyamoto's album '120,000 Stories' out January 29, 2021, on Smithsonian Folkways. '120,000 Stories' available on 2xCD set and Digital. Stream/download/purchase: Smithsonian Folkways: All other platforms: Nobuko Miyamoto is an icon of Asian American music and activism. Since the early 1970s, she has been exploring ways to reclaim and respirit our minds, bodies, histories, and communities, using the arts to create social change and forge solidarity. '120,000 Stories' collects powerful new songs, reinterpretations of old ones, and recordings from across her career, including from the seminal 1973 album 'A Grain of Sand' and the band Warriors of the Rainbow. These songs speak to past and present struggles—for self-determination, Black Lives, the environment. They chronicle difficult histories, they celebrate resilient traditions, and most of all, they endeavor to connect communities. The forthcoming Smithsonian Folkways album is supported in part by Federal funds administered by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center.
