For a week each July, Sound Session spreads genre-defying world music to neighborhoods throughout Providence. From events in restaurants and clubs, to street performances and a city-spanning parade, Sound Session takes over Providence, bringing diverse world cultures to Rhode Island. From Jazz great Ron Carter to rising stars like Jamaican dancehall hit Queen Ifrica, Sound Session reaches all audiences.
Donald King, executive director of the Providence Black Repertory Theater, and Lynne McCormack, director of art, culture, and tourism for the city of Providence, discuss this year's event.
