Interview with Sounds of Blackness

It's been 40 years since the inception of the world-renowned, Grammy-Award winning Sounds of Blackness. Yet, they continue to rise to the top and their new self-titled project, with single, "Fly Again," featuring Jamecia Bennett, is no exception.

As students at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minn., The Sounds of Blackness formed in 1971, responding to a call to inspire people from all walks of life through song by blending sounds that cover the African Diaspora with the ever-changing influences of modern music. This mission resulted in a combination of traditional African and African-American music with urban soul. Their recordings are known to include Negro Spirituals, Ragtime, Blues, Jazz, Reggae, Rock, Classical, R&B, Funk, Gospel and Hip-Hop.
