Noon30: Slave Shout Songs From The Georgia Coast: Mcintosh County Shouters

National Heritage Fellows, the McIntosh County Shouters are foremost practitioners of a very unique segment of Georgia’s musical history, the “ring shout.” The ten-member ensemble consists of the songster, stickman, bassers and the shouters, who collectively re-enact this call-and-response song form and formalized dance-like movement originally established by slaves on the Georgia coast. This is their third SMF appearance.
“… a national treasure that has preserved one of the oldest forms of African American cultural and religious expression with a direct link to African roots.” –World Music Institute
