It's also delightfully easygoing, intricate yet breezy. Carter and </span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">her unique band feature a mix of violin with </span>kora<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> (West African harp) and accordion along with drums and bass for a compelling blend of jazz and African roots that both infectious and energizing.</span></div><p> Tue, 19 Nov 2013 02:00:00 +0000 36146 at http://redriverradio.org Newport Jazz Festival: Regina Carter's Reverse Thread In Concert
