Cécile McLorin Salvant

UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance presents multi-Grammy Award winner Cécile McLorin Salvant, performing songs from her Nonesuch Records debut album, Ghost Song.

Ghost Song  explores the many ways people can be haunted — by lingering memories, roads not taken and ghosts real and imagined. Its disquietingly evocative songs follow living souls as they confront torments of absence — some characters lament loved ones gone too soon, others are troubled by the remnants of vanished romance and still others are paralyzed by the sense of time galloping past. Nothing Salvant has done can quite prepare listeners for the visceral intensity and genre-obliterating atmospheres of Ghost Song. The work draws on the tools she has used in the past, but in new and harrowing ways.
