Corey Harris in unlike any blues artist that you’ll ever hear. Although I’d be willing to bet that he drives so-called “blues purist” simply daffy with his hybrid style, the fact remains that the man makes engaging, intelligent music. Using Mississippi Delta Blues as a starting point, Harris adds in layers of Southern Gospel, Reggae, and other Caribbean Sounds, and the rhythms of Africa to create a unique highly individual music. The result is an invigorating blend of cultures and style- a blues-based world music, if you will.
A natural born storyteller, Harris uses his invigorating musical smorgasbord as a soundtrack for his epic lyrical attempt to connect the stories of African-Americans of centuries ago with the Black Experience today. It’s an ambitious song cycle, one that could only ne attempted by an artist of Harris’s talent and experience.
