MENDI + KEITH OBADIKE | Document: If the Heavens Don't Hear, the Earth Will Hear

· Side A: "If the Heavens Don't Hear (A Roller Skating Jam for Marian Anderson)"
· Side B: "The Earth Will Hear (for Audre Lorde and Marlon Riggs)"
· & a remix of "Heavens" by Gordon Voidwell

The song titles come from an English translation of an Igbo proverb: "Si kele onye nti chiri; enu anughi, ala anu."

Mendi +Keith Obadike make music, art and literature. Their works include The Sour Thunder, an Internet opera (Bridge Records) and a poetry collection, Armor and Flesh (Lotus Press). Mendi + Keith also produced a text-sound compilation album entitled Crosstalk: American Speech Music (Bridge Records). Their opera-masquerade, entitled Four Electric Ghosts, premiered at The Kitchen in 2009.
