Virtual: Gaye Adegbalola - Songs from the Griot

Wednesday, September 16, 2020

A griot is a member of a class of traveling poets, musicians and storytellers who maintain a tradition of oral history in parts of West Africa. Gaye Adegbalola sees herself as a present day griot who maintains black history using the blues as her art form for storytelling. Gaye says, “The blues is about that which gives you trouble.” So she presents topical blues for topical times!
