In honor of Black History Month and Samara Joy‘s extraordinary GRAMMY® Awards success winning for Best New Artist and Jazz Vocal Album, Savage Content is pleased to provide this first look into their upcoming Children of Bronzeville project with three outstanding performances featuring Joshua Banbury, Vanisha Gould and Samara Joy. They are accompanied by acclaimed Jazz pianist, Aaron Diehl.
Children of Bronzeville is a song cycle based on children’s poems by Gwendolyn Brooks, a Chicago native who was born in Bronzeville in 1915 and in 1950 became the first African American to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize in poetry. The songs, written by Jazz/classical composer Patrick Zimmerli, blend elements of Jazz, pop and classical music.
