Rising Appalachia is more than your average band. You may remember their percussionist Biko Cassini’s interview with Moriah Hope, featured in our ‘Muses of Musical Medicine’ section this summer. Lead singers Chloe and Leah are sisters from Atlanta, Georgia. They have turned their music into a movement intended to enliven and empower the people to take care of the earth and each other. But don’t get it twisted, these bluesy sisters can still strum a sexy tune that will bring you right out of the world and into a place of perfect harmony. As true medicine women, they deliver the essence of being human through sacred, uniquely inspired sound vibrations and right actions.
