Leyla mccalla

Invited to the 2017 Books & Music Festival

In line with her first album Vari-Colored Songs, Leyla McCalla continues the multi-cultural exploration of her two countries, Haiti where she comes from, and the United States where she lives in New Orleans, in her new album A Day for the Hunter, a Day for the Prey. Modern heiress of Alan Lomax and marked by the history of American folk and jazz, she is a multi-instrumentalist and writes and sings in English, French and Haitian Creole. Whether traditional pieces revisited or original compositions, there is something timeless, natural and intense at the same time in all his songs, as well as essential scents of freedom and humanism .
