World renowned violinist Regina Carter will be previewing her upcoming release, Reverse Thread, on Saturday March 6 at the Pasquerilla Performing Arts Center. The album is a celebration of traditional African folk music with a contemporary feel, re-imaged for the violin.
To achieve the uplifting and stirring result, Regina added an accordion and kora, the West African harp traditionally played by village storytellers, to her longstanding rhythm section. Kora virtuoso Yacouba Sissoko was brought on board to help recreate the spirit of passing stories from generation to generation. The result, unlike anything previously heard, is a haunting and beautiful compliment to Regina’s sumptuously seductive violin.
Reverse Thread allowed Regina Carter to make a meaningful musical contribution on her own terms.
