Les Cenelles is a contemporary string ensemble who explore the Creole diaspora through melody and memory to honor cultural ancestors and preserve the plurality of their experiences through a prismatic and contemporary lens. Ensemble members include the following: free feral, Sultana Isham, mun, Joseph Darensbourg, Peter J Bowling, Cory Diane, and Denise Frazier. General admission $20 | NOMA members $15 ABOUT LES CENELLES Inspired by the group of poets who first used the name at the turn of the 19th century, Les Cenelles honors and pays homage to the creative, artistic and corporal freedom of self-expression embodied by our namesake. Les Cenelles melds a wide variety of genres, sounds, and musical traditions rooted in the rich heritage and past of the Gulf South while moving ideas of creolité forward with new interpretation and technology. Our ensemble is string forward, and we speak through voices that articulate a variety of life experiences, races, sexualities, abilities and perspectives.
