Founded by cellist Nioka Workman, the engaging and inspiring Firey String Sistas! are a refreshing alternative to the standard jazz band. This stellar all-female ensemble is comprised of violin, cello, bass, piano, and drums. Their performances incorporate world music, women’s culture, string improvisation, and a deep connection to jazz history, as evidenced on their recent CD “That’s What She Said,” which All About Jazz calls “simultaneously accessible and sophisticated, poignant and erudite.”
