The Creole Choir of Cuba to Perform at Celtic Connections 2011

Creole Choir of Cuba
The Creole Choir of Cuba will perform Saturday, January 29th at 7:30pm at City Halls, Grand Hall in Glasgow.

If you think you know Cuban music, expect a revelation upon hearing the Creole Choir of Cuba, whose impassioned, inspirational polyphony voices a lesser-known but no less musically fruitful aspect of the island’s multicultural heritage.

A hybrid of African and native Caribbean tongues with French, English and Spanish, Creole is Cuba’s second language, the legacy of slaves twice displaced via Haiti, latterly followed by exiles from Papa Doc Duvalier.

Songs of struggle, resistance, defiance and solidarity are thus the choir’s time-honored métier, ringing triumphantly down the eras to inspire you tonight.
