(TEDx Talks) Leah Song of critically acclaimed Rising Appalachia has been keeping the troubadour spirit alive through the music project she and her sister started in 2006. From the streets of New Orleans to festivals and venues all over the world, Rising Appalachia has connected to the local communities wherever they go. They continue to create new genres of music and a new way of being successful in the music industry. In this talk, Leah shares an alternative to main stream music success, the slow music movement.

Leah Song is a powerful songstress, musician, and global griot steeped in the traditions of Southern Soul and international Roots Music. Living between India, Appalachia, New Orleans, Cuba, and Latin America she tears into songs with outrageous prowess, incorporating sultry vocals, rhythm, banjo, guitar, ballads, dance, and storytelling into her work. Both a performer and a teacher, she travels with fire under her belt, songs in her pocket, and a global girth that carries her spirit to every corner it touches… Soloist, educator, and front woman of the internationally acclaimed project Rising Appalachia, look to see more of her work at www.risingappalachia.com

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
