Leyla McCalla & Melissa Laveaux

Venue: Cadogan Hall

Two great singers who combine deep roots in Haiti and the USA come together for one special concert

Leyla McCalla spent two years with the legendary Caroline Chocolate Drops after moving to New Orleans, and her music explores the themes of social justice and a pan-African consciousness.

Melissa Laveaux left Canada in 2016 to honour her Haitian ancestors, and she created her new album Radyo Siwei, inspired by the militant voice of legendary Haitian singer Martha Jean-Claude. Songlines magazine said, “Laveaux’s rich, velvety voice compares to that of legends Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan, and lifts tunes both political and highly personal, heavy with memories and meaning.”

Melissa Laveaux can be seen on Later with Jools on BBC 2 on Tuesday 15 May, repeating Friday 18 May.
