The Great Migration

The musical traditions of the Great Migration of African Americans from the South to the industrialized cities of the Northeast, Midwest, and West during the early 20th century up to the 1970s are featured. Nicholas Payton traces the path of African rhythms from the Caribbean to New Orleans, Kansas City, Chicago, and New York, while Deva Mahal puts her modern edge on soul music. There’s also a program, curated by Jason Moran and Alicia Hall Moran, that explores a continuum of music that changed the sound of America forever.
