10/17/20: SOUNDS FROM THE LOWCOUNTRY: A Gullah Tradition

In the Gullah tradition of rhythmic hand-claps, foot-stomps, and voices lifted up in song, Lowcountry Voices joins your Charleston Jazz Orchestra for an evening to honor centuries of oral traditions and celebrate the spiritual thread that binds generations. Under the direction of Nathan L. Nelson, Lowcountry Voices is a multicultural and ethnically diverse choral performing arts organization with an emphasis on African-American music performed in the SC Lowcountry tradition. The art of Gullah music is extremely rich and has a deep connection with its African roots and ancestors, and genres such as jazz, blues, ragtime, gospel and ‘soul music,’ would not even exist without the influence of African and Gullah music on the world.

TWO SETS: 5PM + 8PM

 

“I am delighted with the eclectic and inspiring lineup of performances and guest artists for Season 12! We’ll be celebrating South Carolina jazz legend Dizzy Gillespie with the great Jon Faddis, recreating the iconic album “Ellington at Newport,” exploring Latin rhythms with Nestor Torres, bringing back the popular Jazz on Screen show, and of course capping the season off with Holiday Swing. I’m perhaps most excited about our collaboration with the Lowcountry Voices, directed by Nate Nelson, where we will be creating a completely new show celebrating the incredible Gullah musical traditions. I remain incredibly grateful for the community which supports such artistic ambitions; Charleston is the envy of the country for a reason!”

-Robert Lewis, Music Director, Charleston Jazz Orchestra
