Garnering praise from NPR Music, Variety, The Guardian, and Barack Obama for her 2022 album Breaking the Thermometer, multi-instrumentalist Leyla McCalla’s music illuminates the Black roots of American culture. McCalla’s music is at once earthy, elegant, soulful, and witty—it vibrates with three centuries of history, blending her New Orleans influences with Haitian rhythms on cello, banjo & guitar—yet also feels strikingly fresh, distinctive, and contemporary.
