Carolina Chocolate Drops, Vusi Mahlasela 

When: Fri., Feb. 8, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $69-119

Now in its seventh year, UNC's Global American South Conference attempts to view the region through a particular lens or theme every year. This time, it's music, meaning that, in addition to lectures and round tables, there are performances. The most notable is this strange union of the state's historical entertainers in Carolina Chocolate Drops with Vusi Mahlasela, a defiant and hopeful South African hero, singer and poet. Both in driving purpose and place of origin, Mahlasela and the Drops make very different folk music, but the combination is just strange enough to work. —Grayson Currin
