As a New York-born Haitian-American living in New Orleans, Leyla McCalla creates music that is steeped in French, Haitian and Creole traditions. A former member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, McCalla—who’s also a pro on the cello, tenor banjo and guitar—ventured out on a solo career to pursue a personal sound. Her latest album, A Day for the Hunter, A Day for the Prey explores issues of social justice and pan-African consciousness, featuring soulful songs sung in English, French and Haitian Creole that are simultaneously fresh, earthy and elegant.
