The idea of the folk singer, the protest singer, the singer-songwriter has become an icon of American resilience -- but too often that voice is assumed to be white. Swimming in Dark Waters aims to subvert that assumption. Led by acclaimed songstress Rhiannon Giddens, founding member of the Grammy-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops, this concert will explore the songs of resistance of the South, both old and new. Giddens' combination of blues, folk and bluegrass will touch on the strong tradition of subversion and cultural resistance from musicians of color throughout the history of the United States. This soul-stirring performance -- coming to D.C.'s Lisner Auditorium -- will also draw from the deep well of protest songs from cellist Leyla McCalla's roots in Haiti and Louisiana, as well as the modern outsider-looking-in observations of singer-songwriter Bhi Bhiman, a first generation American born to Sri Lankan parents.
