New Orleans-based multi-instrumentalist Leyla McCalla was born in Queens, NY but she has drawn extensive inspiration from the folk music of the American South and from her Haitian heritage. The classically trained McCalla first came to public attention as a member of the traditional string band The Carolina Chocolate Drops and as a founding member of all Black female supergroup, Our Native Daughters (Rhiannon Giddens, Allison Russell, Amythyst Kiah). Her most recent solo album, 2022's Breaking the Thermometer, explores the Haiti of her parent's youth through the lens of the island's indigenous sounds and the saga of the pioneering independent Radio Haiti broadcast station. For this family-friendly performance, McCalla will introduce young audiences to Haiti's musical and political traditions and delineate the nation's connections to America's history.
