Slave Shout Songs from the Coast of Georgia

Slave Shout Songs from the Coast of Georgia

The McIntosh County Shouters, 1993 recipients of the National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage Fellowship, are known for their compelling fusion of dance, call-and-response singing, and percussion consisting of hand-clapping and beating a stick. The ring shout has African origins, but as the tradition formed during slavery, it also contains strong elements of Christian belief. This album will make you want to jump out of your chair and join in.
