"Q.U.E.E.N.S." is a musical meditation on the affirmation of healing past life experiences, traumas, and present issues while answering questions and exploring ways to move forward. This is a multi generational interdisciplinary performance mashup of sound design, spoken word, beats and bits, quasi Hip Hop, rock, and avant-garde movement. "Q.U.E.E.N.S." represents a work in progress created and performed by Nona Hendryx with Special Guests, Liza Jessie Peterson (poet and spoken word artist), Divinity Roxx (bassist and vocalist), and Be Steadwell (singer, songwriter, and filmmaker)
