Hering Auditorium – Friday, April 4 at 8pm
Injecting a healthy dose of his own personality and ingenuity, Cedric Watson has been exciting an ever-broadening audience with his unique take on traditional Creole music, and his new compositions that expand the genre while still respecting his roots. Cedric’s creative style features him moving with ease between fiddle and accordion, and adding his strong blues-inflected vocals. Sidi Touré both captures and challenges his roots. While the music and rhythms remain authentically Songhai, his lyrics reveal an observant and critical mind. His songs draw attention to issues not usually addressed by singers from such ancient traditions. Travel from Africa to the Delta, experiencing the blues through this exciting collaboration.
