ABOUT THE SHOW
Sing Sistah Sing! Tales of Transatlantic Freedom is a work conceived, written and performed by internationally celebrated Mezzo Soprano Andrea Baker in collaboration with renowned composer Howard Moody.
The show celebrates African diasporic narratives from our living musical cultures of folk, blues, jazz, psalm singing and opera, as well as the music of Robert Burns. Andrea performs an incredible range of rare and beautiful songs from across centuries and oceans, connecting and exploring awe-inspiring musical traditions, story and song.
This musical journey had its world premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Scotland, in August 2022 and now comes to Boston in February 2023 for its North American debut.
