Banjo-Based Quartet Of Rhiannon Giddens, Amythyst Kiah, Leyla McCalla & Allison Russell On Vinyl LP!

2020 Grammy Award Nominee:
Best American Roots Song: "Black Myself"

Songs Of Our Native Daughters gathers together kindred musicians Rhiannon Giddens, Amythyst Kiah, Leyla McCalla and Allison Russell in song and sisterhood to communicate with their forebears. Drawing on and reclaiming early minstrelsy and banjo music, these musicians reclaim, recast and spotlight the often unheard and untold history of their ancestors, whose stories remain vital and alive today. The material on Songs Of Our Native Daughters - written and sung in various combinations - is inspired by New World slave narratives, discrimination and how it has shaped our American experience, as well as musicians such as Haitian troubadour Althiery Dorval and Mississippi Hill Country string player Sid Hemphill, and more.

With unflinching, razor-sharp honesty, they confront sanitized views about America's history of slavery, racism and misogyny from a powerful, black female perspective. These songs call on the persistent spirits of the daughters, mothers and grandmothers who have fought for justice - in large, public ways - only now being recognized, and in countless domestic ways that will most likely never be acknowledged.

Songs of Our Native Daughters lays out a crucial, updated framework for Americana.
