Rhythm of Rebellion: Jeneda Benally – Punk Rock for Hope and Healing
Taína Asili speaks with Jeneda Benally, a bassist, vocalist, and songwriter, and one half of the multi-award winning duo Sihasin. Jeneda and her brother Clayson Benally are from the Dine’ (Navajo) Nation in Northern Arizona. Together with their family, they grew up protesting the environmental degradation and inhumane acts of cultural genocide against their traditional way of life. Today they create a politically-charged explosive organic sound out of just bass, drums and vocals, inspiring their listeners with a punk backbone, softened by a folk heart, thumping by pop and international sounds, and based in Navajo Rhythm.
