Sō Percussion with Caroline Shaw
Pulitzer Prize-winner Caroline Shaw joins Sō Percussion as vocalist for ten songs she co-composed with the quartet members. Let the Soil Play Its Simple Part explores soil cultivation as a metaphor for creativity and collaboration. Shaw’s remarkable ear for melody and harmony and Sō’s playful sense of rhythmic invention come together in this strikingly original music. Taking inspiration from James Joyce, ABBA, American roots music, plainchant, Christian hymns and stories from the Old Testament, Sō Percussion and Caroline Shaw dissolve the boundaries between classical and pop.
