A Day for the Hunter, A Day for the Prey, the follow up to Leyla McCalla's critically acclaimed Vari-Colored Songs, is a musical exploration of two cultural identities — one sprouted in the United States and the other firmly planted in Hati. McCalla alternates between cello, tenor banjo and guitar, and sings in English, French and Haitian Creole. Whether she tackles fresh versions of traditional pieces or original compositions, there is a timelessness and perceptivity to all of her songs, which ask big questions and demand big answers. It's an exhilarating thing, hearing a musical virtuoso explore her voice's unanticipated potential in all of the ways that Leyla McCalla does. She's a formally trained cellist who's loosemed her playing from the strictures of classical technique, teasing out its more nimbly rhythmic qualities. She's a cunning interpreter and arranger, equally at ease with English, French and Haitian Creole, given to gracefully flitting around the beat with her feathery timbre and finespun vibrato. She's also a singer-songwriter, tracing the intricate textures of post-colonial, pan-African experience with her poetic language of longing.
