Grammy Nominated, Percussion Driven Vocal Ensemble,
Linda Tillery & the Cultural Heritage Choir
African-American Roots Music that Rocks!
The Cultural Heritage Choir, a Grammy nominated, percussion driven, vocal ensemble, performs at the Osher Marin JCC’s Kanbar Center on Sat. April 5, 2014 @ 8pm. Pursuing their mission to help preserve and share the rich musical traditions of African-American roots, Linda and the CHC will be filling the Hoytt Theater with bluesy, soulful, rockin’ harmonies and beats rooted in the deep south and strongly connected to their West African and Caribbean origins.
CHC is led by native San Franciscan Linda Tillery, a Grammy nominated vocalist, producer, arranger, speaker, and self-taught ethno-musicologist. For the past 16 years she has dedicated her artistic life to the research, teaching, and performance of the great African-American oral tradition of song, stick, and story - the ancestor of today’s American popular song.
Performing together since 1992, the Cultural Heritage Choir creates dynamic rhythms and sparkling energy on stage. Their vocals are lush and vibrant; their performances are poignant and uplifting.
