Legacy of Weyanoke

Brochure (.pdf)*


An a cappella vocal ensemble
specializing in the songs and stories
of the African Diaspora

Legacy of Weyanoke take their audiences on a journey that pays tribute to that taken by the African ancestors, including those who established in 1619 the first known African settlement in an English-speaking colony in North America. The journey includes countless encounters with Native Americans, who became coworkers, allies, friends and family members.

Songs from African chant to concert spiritual to Cherokee invocation   

Legacy of Weyanoke's members are musicians and storytellers with many years of performing experience throughout North and South America, Europe and Africa among them.

Legacy of Weyanoke has performed to great acclaim for audiences of all ages, walks of life and ethnic backgrounds, in a great variety of settings. Their programs range in length from 15 to 90 minutes or longer, depending on the needs of the presenting organization.
