noho arts music reviews Johanna Dadap’s “The World’s Gone Up in Smoke” single.
19-year-old Filipino singer-songwriter Johanna Dadapu has released her environmental petition, “The World’s Gone Up in Smoke,” to the world.
Her beautiful smoky voice, full of texture and heartache mixed with soulful acoustic guitar, provides the perfect balance for a melancholic ode to our beautiful world.
“The World’s Gone Up in Smoke” also has a sweetness to it. It’s not all doom and gloom. Dadapu sings to the conscience of the planet, urging us to respect our responsibilities and not turn our backs on the weak.
It’s a lovely tune, gently spun, beautifully buoyant, and fun to listen to, but a difficult lesson. Dadapu sings, “When the elephants are gone and the birds stop singing”, “It’s all too late, too soon”.
I know my children can’t understand why the devastation of the earth isn’t the only thing we talk about every day. I understand. Let’s hope this is a warning song, not a prophecy. But hope is what got us here. not action.
i love this song. It’s a wonderful juxtaposition of hard-to-hear truths about the state of our world and sweet refrains sung in a voice much deeper and more poignant than her age.
We look forward to more success from Johanna Dadapu, the true voice of the generation.
