Text by Bettina "Gold" Wilkerson (Poet Gold)
Don’t Feel Bad for Me by Poet Gold, with a musical setting for baritone, folk guitar, violin, and clarinet by Gilbert Galindo, touches on the theme of empathy for our fellow human beings who suffer personal or social injustices accompanied by blues riffs and harmonies, modern dissonances, and at times dramatic operatic flare.
