The daughter of Haitian newcomer parents, Leyla McCalla, whether by destine or synchronicity, moved to New Orleans in 2010 after studying cello playing and compartment music at New York University, and once there, while busking and playing on the road corners and in the bars and clubs, she mow down in liking with Louisiana Creole way of life, and coupled with her further explorations of Haiti«s time-honoured Creole populace music, she developed a putrescent and grounded euphonious view, comparatively old and time-honoured and comparatively unorthodox thoughtful. As this inauguration solitary album (she was featured on the Carolina Chocolate Drops» Leaving Eden album and has toured extensively with them) shows, it«s a mix that McCalla balances well, with most of the tracks featuring her euphonious arrangements of various Langston Hughes poems, along with ripsnorting in person versions of a four of time-honoured Haitian populace songs. If this sounds like things here will be a little harsh and lettered, well, they»re not, as McCalla makes the Hughes lyrics her own, and the not much, haunting handle of these tracks is unchanged, relation to this century but susceptibilities like they could have come from original in the century before, too, or even the one before that, a amiable of euphonious hat sport that is rather redoubtable, to say the least. McCalla«s present is furious and just lose jazz-tinged, and she plays not much significance banjo and acoustic guitar on some of the cuts here, but it is her cello playing that gives the album its one of a amiable look, all furious and close and lowering somehow, enchanting the opening arrangements to canny touching places. The opener, «Heart of Gold,» sets the modify, gaunt and yet opening, and tracks like the significance banjo-led «Mesi Bondye» and the acoustic guitar blues «Too Blue» award the set directory some make. McCalla»s inauguration solitary album is a fully realized and nuanced gem, and one can't help but be interested and nosy about her next euphonious project.
