Album · 2010 · 14 Songs. The first all African-American band to play the Grand Ole Opry, Carolina Chocolate Drops are an old-time revival trio specializing in the traditional ‘30s negro stringband songs that were originally played around campfires and on back porches after long days of toiling in the fields.

Genuine Negro Jig. LP (12" album, 33 rpm). Carolina Chocolate Drops Format: Vinyl. "Please retry". The Carolina Chocolate Drops are as much about revelation as revival. On its Nonesuch debut, Genuine Negro Jig, the trio brings exuberance, humor, virtuosity and an infectious acoustic groove to its exploration of a near-forgotten brand of banjo-driven string-band music originating more than a century ago in the foothills of North Carolina, the Piedmont region where band members Rhiannon Giddens and Justin Robinson were raised.

Genuine Negro Jig is perfectly recorded, balanced between the best sound this century can deliver and the rustic, throwback feel of an old-time string band in action at a picnic, dance or rent party in the '30s. That’s the accomplishment here. The next step, if the Carolina Chocolate Drops are willing to go there, is to stretch things from being a great facsimile to being a natural extension of an ongoing tradition. That’s when revival changes into evolution.

Carolina Chocolate Drops is an American old-time string band from Durham, North Carolina. Their 2010 album, Genuine Negro Jig, won the Grammy Award for Best Traditional Folk Album at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards, and was number 9 in fRoots magazine's top 10 albums of 2010. The band came together to play the rich tradition of fiddle and banjo music in Carolina's Piedmont.
