Indomitable Spirit: Music of the African Diaspora in the Americas

Get ready for the upcoming Muse Hour with Rhiannon Giddens & Francesco Turrisi! Accompany Americana roots musician and storyteller Benjamin Hunter and musician/educator Antonio M. Gomez as they discuss the creative power of African heritage in shaping the music of North and South America. Discover the African roots of the banjo and learn how New Orleans, New York and Havana are kindred cities. Travel from the Mississippi Delta to Salvador, Brazil as we trace the resilience of African identity to not only endure the tragedies of the slave trade, but to become a guiding force in shaping popular culture in the Americas.
