Inspired by the Gullah singers of the Georgia Sea Islands, with their marvelous a capella style. My friends and I sat in a half circle in my living room and as each singer took a turn leaning in to sing the lead, the others all around filled all the little spaces with harmonies.

I met some Gullah folks while looking for new places to surf. They were awesome and so is this!
