Phenomenal Woman [extract]

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
The palm of my hand,
The need for my care. 
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

    -  Maya Angelou

This sentiment of Maya Angelou’s poem - and the idea of what it means for women to work, create and be together - underpins all of our work in Breakfast Club, be it our way of creating material as a quartet or working within the wider world.

As such, we take this question into our various projects to see how it relates to communities from different backgrounds and experiences. We love how much we grow and learn as musicians when we are welcomed into these incredible spaces.
