Global Notes: Chicago Folklore Ensemble

The Chicago Folklore Ensemble blends oral history and traditional music together in original compositions. The Ensemble has collected the stories and music traditions of master musicians from Ghana, Serbia, Argentina, Thailand and Jordan, here in Chicago’s immigrant communities. We’ll revisit their live performance in our Jim and Kay Mabie Studio. PHOTO: Courtesy of Chicago Folklore Ensemble
