Artists 2023 – Nr. 2: Leyla McCalla

by Steffen Henkel

Leyla McCalla was born in New York City to Haitian human rights activist immigrant parents but has relocated to New Orleans since. Her music digs deep into her roots to unearth history and explore all these sources and more: jazz, Cajun, folk, blues and Haitian Creole traditions. ‘Sometimes intoxicating, always enriching and a toast to the diversity of pop music.’ (Musikexpress)
