De Gullah Singers natives of Wadmalaw Island, SC provide an in depth picture of the evolution of their ancestor; West Africans enslaved on rice, cotton and indigo plantations of coastal South Carolina. The isolation they were subjected to on these sea islands served as mechanism for them retain more of their Afican culture than any other enslaved African population n the United States. We invite to experience their story through music(children songs and games, work songs, Praise House & plantation Spirituals, stories(Cuumyah and Been yah tales) demonstrations of antebellum work skills, crafts, open fire cooking and recipes and so much more. We invite to visit the Gullah Islands southwest of Charleston, SC.
