Music of Resistance & Hope

The SONGS OF BLACK FOLK returned for a second year after a truly magical debut two years ago before a mesmerized audience of more than 1,800. Songs of Black Folk took the stage of Seattle's Iconic Paramount Theatre on Sunday evening June 18th, at 7:00 pm.

SONGS OF BLACK FOLK 2023 once again presented a music tradition that began on the African continent and was transported to the Americas, via slave ships, and took root in the daily sufferings of an enslaved Black people who chose to survive and who fought to be free. This Concert featured the rise of the Negro Spirituals and demonstrate how they have evolved into other Black musical genres including, blues, Gospel, jazz, R&B, Hip-Hop, and even spoken word.

Stay tuned for our upcoming production for 2024.
