Swimming in Dark Waters: Other Voices of the American Experience - Featuring Rhiannon Giddens, Bhi Bhiman and Leyla McCalla

Tags/Genres Roots

Carolina Chocolate Drops’ electric, genre-bending singer/instrumentalist Rhiannon Giddens, described by The New York Times as “a perpetually soulful marvel,” joins forces here with folk singer/songwriter Bhi Bhiman and cellist/singer Leyla McCalla. In this impassioned concert they delve into the profound yet too often overlooked history of protest, subversion and cultural resistance by musicians of color in the United States, from the original inhabitants to recently arrived immigrants. This performance celebrates Black History Month.
