"All about innovation and serious fun, the Grammy-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops are widely credited with reviving the sounds of black string band music from the Piedmont region of the Carolinas. Upstarts in a stable of deep tradition, they are also a link between past and future, exploring generations-old songs with a modern touch. They collaborate here with New York gypsy punk band Luminescent Orchestrii in a mix of jazz, string band, Balkan and beat-box inventiveness."
