Les Cenelles is a contemporary string ensemble exploring the Creole diaspora through melody and memory to honor our cultural ancestors and preserve the plurality of their experiences through a prismatic and contemporary lens.
As part of Seeds & Beats 2021, they will be playing a longer-form piece with narration from Ms. Sharon Lavigne called “RISE” inspired by Ms. Sharon Lavigne.
