A Haitian-American who sings in French, Haitian Creole and English, Leyla McCalla plays cello, tenor banjo and guitar. Deeply influenced by traditional Creole, Cajun and Haitian music, as well as by American jazz and folk, her music is at once earthy, elegant, soulful and witty — it vibrates with three centuries of history, yet also feels strikingly fresh, distinctive and contemporary.
A Day for the Hunter, A Day for the Prey is a vibrant and beguiling album by an artist adept in many musical fields, one able to coalesce multifarious strands into a unique identity.
