Regina Carter's Reverse Thread at Newport

Friday, March 23, 2012 - 6:00pm

In her continuing project Reverse Thread, MacArthur Fellow Regina Carter weaves a group sound from African melodies on her violin with accordion, the harp-like kora, bass and drums. The group interprets music from Mali and Madagascar and dedicates a piece to New Orleans. Will Holshouser, Yacouba Sissoko, Chris Lightcap and Alvester Garnett are the band. NPR Music calls this set from Newport "a bright, vibrant show.
