A fusion of spoken word, rap, and “why we sing the Blues” Sista Gal, delivers a positive Afrocentric touch to create this raspy, unique sound of socially conscious lyrics, in the southern Geechee/ Gullah dialect. Gliding between folk and blues, this moving blend of words and beats, captures the eclectic ear and emotion.
With each passing generation the Gullah/Geechee dialect becomes less used and known. This dialect, hardly ever written down, is made of African and Caribbean blended words formed when Black slaves were brought together from many tribes to America, and forced to speak a common language.
Experience the Geechee dialect. Listen to the message. The preservation of this dialect, is crucial as an important part of American history and heritage. The mantra, pays homage to those who worked before us and reminds us to keep striving ‘cause, We Got Work To Do.
Step into an old southern kitchen. Hear the southern Geechee dialect. Walk across the creaky wood floor, and follow the smell of fluffy biscuits and hickory cured bacon. You know ole’ grandma is gonna’ have something to preach about, but you don’t mind ‘cause the food is that good. This is the message. This is Sista Gal. We Got Work To Do!
