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)
