“She’s partly in the moment and partly looking beyond it, and seeing truths that we’ve missed.”—NPR

Deeply influenced by traditional Creole, Cajun and Haitian music, as well as by American jazz and folk, Leyla McCalla is at once earthy and elegant, her sound vibrating with three centuries of history yet strikingly fresh and distinctive. The former Carolina Chocolate Drop’s debut album, Vari-Colored Songs: A Tribute to Langston Hughes, was named 2013’s Album of the Year by the London Sunday Times, and The Guardian praised her latest record, The Capitalist Blues, for pushing the boundaries of contemporary New Orleans music.
