Hailed as “a cunning interpreter and arranger” by NPR, Haitian-American folk singer-songwriter Leyla McCalla is equally at ease with English, French, and Haitian Creole. Deeply influenced by traditional Creole, Cajun, and Haitian music, as well as by American jazz and folk, her music is at once earthy, elegant, soulful, and witty. A classically trained cellist, she is perhaps best known for her work with the Grammy-winning African-American string band The Carolina Chocolate Drops, but her virtuosity also shines in her critically acclaimed solo albums. The “ambitious, deep and gorgeous” Vari-Colored Songs (Offbeat Magazine) was named 2013’s Album of the Year by the London Sunday Times, and the upcoming Capitalist Blues continues to showcase the breadth of her talents. Incorporating elements of swinging blues, classic New Orleans R&B, and calypso, it reveals a more danceable side to her music, and with her finger on the pulse of our current political climate, McCalla deftly weaves strong themes of social justice throughout. Join us for this remarkable evening of songwriting and multi-instrumental skills.
