The Creole Choir of Cuba lifts up audiences with joyous melodies, vocal harmonies, and sung stories from their Haitian and Cuban ancestors, all of which have helped the group earn a Grammy nomination and praise from the New York Times. Today’s deal teams with event organizer CityMusic Columbus to highlight the 10-piece ensemble’s Ohio premiere and matching argyle socks. Classic Cuban tunes such as “Son de la Loma” boogie with songs plucked from the ensemble’s 200 years of Haitian heritage. “Fey” (“Leaf”) honors a mother whose son has been shipped away for political dissidence, and “Ou Pa Nan Chaj” (“You Are Not in Charge”) teems with humor as the choir’s ladies bully a male vocalist with their backsides. Clad in bold, African-inspired colors and patterns, the musicians infuse the space with a party-like atmosphere as they dance, bang drums, and invite concertgoers onstage for impromptu potato-sack races.
The Lincoln Theatre’s Jazz Age architecture and 83 years of history envelop performances in old-fashioned opulence. In addition to selling tickets and concessions, the venue’s spacious new lobby welcomes guests with a balcony and a chest-bump from each usher.
