Our Native Daughters

Songs of Our Native Daughters brings together Rhiannon Giddens and Amythyst Kiah and Leyla McCalla who are all musicians of similar ilk to share their stories with their forefathers. These musicians draw on the rich history of their ancestors’ early banjo and minstrel music and reclaim it. Songs of Our Native Daughters is a collection of songs that were written and sung in many combinations. It was inspired by New World slave narratives and discrimination, how it has shaped America’s experience, as well musicians like Althiery Dorval, a Haitian troubadour, and Sid Hemphill (Mississippi Hill Country string player), and more.
