Hurray For The Riff Raff
It had been a successful, if tumultuous, ride for Alynda Segarra, who’s been spreading a new kind of roots-conscious folk music across the country from her adopted hometown of New Orleans. But as far as the Bronx native had come with her band, Hurray For The Riff Raff, there was still a missing link to her story. Segarra became the willing vessel for a character she calls “”The Navigator,”” from which her new album takes its name. Through The Navigator, the listener hears an ambitiously interwoven, cinematic story of a wandering soul who finally realized she needed to connect with and honor her ancestors.
