African Music Through the Ages

Thursday, February 20, 2020

All Ages

In this program, blues and roots artist Oma Pearl (aka the “Conjure Woman”) performs songs that highlight the African origins of contemporary American music. Pearl, an Indie Blues singer/songwriter, encompasses a wide range of material within the American roots genre, from work songs and ring shouts to Delta blues, spirituals, mountain songs, and rock and roll. She named her project to honor the conjure woman – a classic, yet timeless figure in the black
community who aided people when they had trouble. Whether performing solo with traditional instruments, or with a full electric band, Pearl will surely transport the audience back in time to where American music began.
