Global Notes: Chicago Folklore Ensemble Celebrates Music And Stories Of Chicago Immigrants

The Chicago Folklore Ensemble has been collecting stories told by Chicago’s immigrant communities in a new project titled “The World in Chicago.” 

The stories are accompanied by their new album of songs adapted for string ensemble from the same immigrant communities. 

This week on Global Notes, we talk with Lucia Thomas and Sam Hyson, the founders of the ensemble.
