Title: Boykin, Alabama: Sacred Spirituals Of Gee's Bend
Artist: Gee's Bend Quilters
Label: Dolceola Recordings
UPC: 193428414112
Genre: Gospel

This all newly recorded album is a collection of 20 sacred spirituals of the South including "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot", "Amazing Grace", "Steal Away" and many others, sung by four of Gee's Bend quilters, Mary Ann Pettway, China Pettway, Larine Pettway and Nancy Pettway. The recording session has been made at Gee's Bend Quilters Collective, over a period of 3 years from May 2015 to June 2017. This is the debut recording for these four quilters, and you can hear their unique, emotional, and beautiful singing style, which the quilters have been preserving over centuries, in the isolated African-American community surrounded on three sides by the Alabama River. Says China: "While quilting, I sing because it's a sound of whistling humming God gave me. Quilting is a healing, just like singing. I think quilting and singing is a healing for our soul. This record should be heard over the whole world because somebody will see the light. Psalm 100:2 says we serve the Lord with gladness come before his presence with singing." The tradition of Gee's Bend quilts goes back to the 19thcentury. This African-American art is now one of the most important black cultures in the United States. "Boykin, Alabama - Sacred Spirituals of Gee's Bend" is another side of this great African-American tradition inherited for generations.
