State of Water Episode 25! Amber Hasan is a brilliant artistic force of nature. Her work with poetry, music, herbalism and activism focuses on bringing light to dark places and situations, while also helping others to find and use their voices as a tool of empowerment. Amber is a hip hop artist, a member of the Earthwork Music Collective, owner of a natural product line called Mama’s Healing Hands, co-founder of the Sister Tour artist collective, and host of the Loud Mouth Ghetto Girl Podcast. Backed by a fellowship from PolicyLink’s Water Equity and Climate Resilience Caucus, Amber and Seth Bernard collaborated on a new track called Watersong. The song, featuring We the People of Detroit President Monica Lewis Patrick, and produced with help from the Lasso, is a genre defying call to action for environmental justice. Amber caught up with dear friend and collaborator Seth Bernard – we hope you enjoy their amazing conversation, as well as a premiere of the new track: Watersong. Check out the song, streaming everywhere now, along with a powerful music video!
