Leyla McCalla

On the cello and banjo, Leyla McCalla brings the past together with the present. In addition to jazz, the multi-instrumentalist and singer is involved with folkloric and Creole musical forms. Her polyglot exploration of classics and standards, however, is guided not only by aesthetic interests but, on albums like The Capitalist Blues, also by sociopolitical demands. Her reinterpretations of Haitian songs, for example, tell stories of oppression and resistance.
