Description

The Cultural Heritage Choir is a Grammy nominated, percussion driven, vocal ensemble whose mission is to help preserve and share the rich musical traditions of African-American roots music. Their music is rooted in the deep south and strongly connected to their West African and Caribbean origins.

Performing together since 1992, the Cultural Heritage Choir creates dynamic rhythms and sparkling energy on stage. Their vocals are lush and vibrant; their performances are poignant and uplifting.      

The group’s first collaboration with veteran performers Taj Mahal and Eric Bibb entitled “Shakin’ A Tailfeather,” was nominated for a Grammy 1997 and their second collaborative effort “Hippity Hop,” was awarded a Parents Choice Award (2000). The group’s most recent recording entitled “Say Yo’ Business”, was nominated for a California Music Award. (2003)

CHC is led by native San Franciscan Linda Tillery, a Grammy nominated vocalist, producer, arranger, speaker, and self-taught ethno-musicologist. For the past 16 years she has dedicated her artistic life to the research, teaching, and performance of the great African-American oral tradition of song, stick, and story – the ancestor of today’s American popular song.

Linda Tillery and the Cultural Heritage Choir, have become world renowned for their breathtaking performances and commitment to the authenticity of African-American roots music.
