Description

Rooted in the verdant soil of African American culture, the a cappella ensemble Sweet Honey In The Rock performs foot-stomping, soul-stirring, consciousness-raising music. With two founding members among the six vocalists, new talent steadily revitalizes the group, which also features an American Sign Language interpreter. Drawing on gospel, hymns, spirituals, R&B and jazz, Sweet Honey delivers songs that seem to float on delicate harmonies and surge with irresistible syncopation, as on their Grammy-nominated album, Experience…101.
