The inspiration for this outdoor performance Volvo Truck began in the backseats of cars driven by four sisters in 1990s Philadelphia. There, during rides after school, absorbed were the sonics, language, tastes, and textures of their automobile interiors while listening to CDs by Curtis Mayfield, Donny Hathaway, Anita Baker, and Antônio Carlos Jobim. This immersive performance takes the loose form of a music video set inspired by this childhood reverence for Black womxn, the music they sing, and the cars they drive.
