Deemed 'exhilarating' and 'celebratory' by music critics, the Creole Choir of Cuba has brought, to the world stage, sounds and rhythms of Haiti's immigrant community in Cuba. The group's 10 members are descendants of West Africans who were enslaved in the Caribbean. They sing songs of their ancestors, infusing them with contemporary sounds. They're on their first major U.S. tour. In a performance chat, Michel Martin hosts the choir, their director Emilia Diaz Chavez and their tour manager Kelso Riddell.
