Carolina Chocolate Drops
Season 4 Episode 6 | 30m 46s
In February, The Carolina Chocolate Drops won the Best Traditional Folk Album Grammy Award for 2010's "Genuine Negro Jig." The band has been a one-band revival of a twice forgotten art form: North Carolina Folk music in the African-American tradition. Rolling Stone describes the band's music as, "dirt floor dance electricity."
