As part of the ¡Sí Cuba! Festival, BAM will present the historic US premiere of The Creole Choir of Cuba. Comprised of descendants of Haitian migrants, the Grammy-nominated group resurrects the half-heard voices and unsung songs lost to the official soundtrack of a nation.
This is a fantastic opportunity to see the truly authentic expression of the Creole population of Cuba. Prepare to be blown away by the passionate melodies, wild harmonies and richly textured arrangements of these ten inspiring vocalists.
"... sublimely blended vocals and rousing carnival rhythms earned a rapturous welcome."
