14 Wharfside Street — Charleston, SC 29401
February 10 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Music provides the opportunity to learn about new cultures, think critically, and express ideas creatively. Through the Jammin Journeys program, youth and families are invited to join us as we explore musical selections, instruments, and techniques from across the Global African Diaspora. A 90-minute experience including a performance and workshop, the program educates participants on diverse music styles and genres while also providing a space for music exploration, listening, and fun! In partnership with the International African American Museum, we invite youth and families to join us on February 10 for Jammin Journeys Feat. Quiana Parler, a performance and workshop centered on the Gullah Geechee connection to Charleston and the Sea Islands and their intersection with the roots of jazz.
As lead vocalist for the internationally and critically acclaimed roots music group Ranky Tanky, Quiana Parler spent weeks at #1 on several Billboard Jazz charts. The group’s eponymous debut album has drawn praise and acclaim from some of the nation’s most discerning and respected music critics. Through Ranky Tanky’s sold-out shows, Quiana is using her artistry to bring the cultural and musical heritage of the SC Lowcountry to some of the most prestigious stages in the US and Europe, like Norway’s Moldejazz and New York City’s Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall.
This performance is presented in partnership with Charleston Jazz. Charleston Jazz is a nonprofit organization dedicated to building a local and global community for jazz through performance, education, and outreach while celebrating and preserving Charleston’s rich history in jazz.
