Sophisticated Savagery: FaSoLa Singing

Kevin Bouldin, a Tremble friend, created this audio piece for the Nashville NPR affiliate WPLN. They run a series entitled “Upon First Meeting”, and in this episode he explores a music form that “predates both jazz and blues”.

excerpt from NPR article: “More than two hundred years after its birth, the stylings of this a capella music are still being enjoyed across the country from Manhattan to Northern Alabama to San Diego. WPLN’s Kevin Bouldin has this story about fasola and its connection to Music City.”

It is a beautiful piece. You should LISTEN.
