Suzan-Lori Parks’ Sula and the Noise

A brilliant songwriter, vocalist, and guitar player, Suzan-Lori Parks performs with her band Sula and the Noise, with Julian Rozzell and Christian Konopka. Making music with a distinctly Afro-Americana vibe, Sula and the Noise soulfully explores the roots, triumphs, and struggles of life in contemporary America. 

Parks is a dazzling contemporary playwright and screenwriter, famous for Topdog/UnderdogThe America Play, and her adaptation of The Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess. The first African-American woman to win the Pulitzer Prize in Drama, Time magazine named her one of “100 innovators for the Next Wave.”
