Uploaded by AWM
The Warhol welcomes singer, songwriter, cellist and multi-instrumentalist Leyla McCalla to the Carnegie Lecture Hall. McCalla was born in New York City to Haitian immigrant parents, studied cello performance and chamber music at New York University, then moved to New Orleans where she became captivated by Louisiana Creole music and culture. She joined the Carolina Chocolate Drops string band, appearing on the group's Leaving Eden album, before focusing on a solo career and debut album, Vari-Colored Songs, a tribute to Langston Hughes, in 2013, which was named album of the year by both the London Times and Songlines magazine.
