The Cultural Heritage Choir
, a Grammy nominated, percussion driven, vocal ensemble whose mission is to help preserve and share the rich musical traditions of music rooted in the deep south and strongly connected to West African and Caribbean origins. Through stick, song, dance and story, the Choir creates dynamic rhythms and sparkling energy on stage. Their vocals are lush and vibrant, their performances are poignant and uplifting, transporting the audience to a place in time when the roots of American popular music, were just being sewn by the "involuntary immigrants" from Africa's western regions.
