Leyla McCalla Trio


Cellist Leyla McCalla is known for her work with the Carolina Chocolate Drops. After forming a new trio, she released "A Day for the Hunter, a Day for the Prey" in early 2016. A New York Times critic described it "string-band music in the digital era, with riffs like loops and allusions to fiddle tunes, dance music and deep gospel." It includes a guest appearance by her former Drops bandmate Rhiannon Giddens.
