Boundary-crossing jazz ensemble Duende Libre’s third album, The Dance She Spoke, invites listeners to feel those connections deeply: between music and movement, and between the musical traditions of the Americas and West Africa. “This album is an expression of the many forms of connection that inspire Duende Libre, from intergenerational to cross-cultural,” bandleader Alex Chadsey explains. "In a time of intense social, political, and medical turmoil, we wanted to celebrate the things that are actually working in the world. For us, that includes the human connections and conversations we have with each other.”
