Leyla McCalla began her career as a street musician playing Bach on her cello in New Orleans and went on to tour with the Carolina Chocolate Drops. Now she has developed her own sound, accompanied by her roots-influenced band, drawing on her heritage as a Haitian-American, and singing in French, Haitian Creole, and English. Leyla plays the cello, tenor banjo, and guitar and incorporates those distinctive sounds into her compositions. Her arrangements of traditional songs are earthy, elegant, soulful, and witty, vibrating with three centuries of history, while yet strikingly fresh, distinctive, and new.
