Product description

Product Description

Following her stint with the Carolina Chocolate Drops, and the great critical success of her debut solo album album Vari-Colored Songs (an Album of the Year in the Sunday Times and Songlines), Leyla McCalla returns on a new label, Jazz Village, with her second album. Named after a book on Haitian music (originally from a Haitian proverb), the album focuses on Creole, Cajun and Haitian music, and the centuries of culture and tradition therein. A Day for the Hunter, A Day for the Prey is a vibrant and beguiling album by an artist adept in many musical fields, one able to coalesce multifarious strands into a unique identity.

Review

'...one of the most memorable things you ll hear all year...an impressive and important artist for our times' 5 STARS fRoots ---- 'Very few singers have the qualities that 30-year-old Leyla McCalla brings to this, her second solo album. The former Carolina Chocolate Drop has an unmannered style and a melodic voice that can seem like an extension of her cello playing. She also brings the resonance of history. Born in New York to Haitian parents (and human rights activists), she now lives in New Orleans, a cultural diaspora reflected in a mix of original and traditional songs delivered in English, French and Creole. The arrangements are simple banjo, fiddle, guitar, cello but the results often intense. Rhiannon Giddens duets on the beautiful Haitian Manman, and guitarist Marc Ribot rocks out on Peze Café. A delight.' --The Observer

'With A Day For The Hunter…, the versatile Leyla has delivered another totally compelling (and impeccably engineered and self-produced) CD whose distinctive character will outlast many a competitor.' --Fatea Records Magazine

Leyla McCalla is a Haitian American based in New Orleans who is both a fine, soulful singer and a classically trained cellist who also plays banjo and guitar. She has worked with the celebrated Carolina Chocolate Drops, and her second solo album mixes songs from Louisiana and Haiti in a fresh, contemporary-sounding set that includes her own powerful compositions about death and freedom. She starts with the self-composed title track, beating her bow against the cello strings and backed by banjo and viola for a thoughtful lament for the departed, while on the pained Far From Your Web the brass backing has the mournful jollity of a New Orleans funeral band. She sings in English, French and Haitian creole, and on the charming Manman, by the Haitian political singer Manno Charlemagne, she is joined by her former Chocolate Drops colleague Rhiannon Giddens. --The Guardian
