Reframing the Sound
of the South
Call & Response is the second original series between work x work and Sonos, amplifying artist voices and telling stories that shape the cultural dialogue. Following the successful first season of Object of Sound, Sonos’ flagship podcast and radio show, Call & Response highlights the voice of artist Adia Victoria in an 8-episode series that reframes music from the South to center the impact of Black women, and brings the blues tradition of communal music making and listening to Sonos.
From creative vision through sound design and high profile artist bookings, work x work collaborates hand in hand with Adia and Sonos to craft a podcast and radio show that honors her perspective. Initial episodes feature interviews with jazz legend Kamasi Washington, GRAMMY winner Rhiannon Giddens and songwriter Jamila Woods. Each episode is richly sound designed and accompanied by a highly curated playlist of music to mirror the themes of the show. The series launched April 15th 2021 on all podcast platforms, Sonos Radio and Mixcloud.
