9/8 – 9/11/22  (2 shows per evening)

GUEST:  LEYLA MCCALLA

David speaks with Leyla McCalla about her upcoming residency at SFJAZZ, and her new album Breaking The Thermometer (ANTI- Records). Born in New York to Haitian parents, McCalla also lived in Ghana (West Africa) for two years before returning to the US to study cello performance at NYU, and settling in New Orleans. The deep, rich cultural and historical Haitian roots in New Orleans resonated with McCalla, and her journey continued.

Vocalist McCalla also plays banjo and guitar, and was a member of Grammy Award-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops, recording and touring for two years. Her new album is inspired by the radio station Radio Haiti, which broadcasts in the Haitian Kreyòl language – the independent voice of the people.
