The Carolina Chocolate Drops Information

These North Carolina natives formed an old-time string band in 2005 and are one of the two known full-time African American string bands in existence. Current members include Rhiannon Giddens, Dom Flemons, Adam Matta and Hubby Jenkins. Each member sings and plays instruments including banjo, guitar, harmonica, jug, kazoo, bones, snare drum and fiddle. Their music is based on the traditional music of the Piedmont region of North and South Carolina.

The Carolina Chocolate Drops have released five CDs and one EP to date. They have opened for Bob Dylan and Taj Majal and have performed at numerous festivals and conventions. Their 2010 album, "Genuine Negro Jig," won Best Traditional Folk Album at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards and was also No. 9 in FRoots magazine's top 10 albums of the year. The Drops' latest album, "Leaving Eden" was released in February, 2012 and reached No. 123 on the Billboard 200. The group is most recently known for their song on The Hunger Games soundtrack, 'Daughter's Lament.'
