A group of three powerhouse female musicians, The Firey String Sistas infuse world, global funk, ‘head bopping’ soul and jazz rhythms into a unique sound for violin, cello, bass, piano and percussion. Featuring founder, Nioka Workman (bassist, Reggie Workman’s daughter), Marlene Rice, and Mala Waldron (daughter of the late pianist/composer Mal Waldron), the ‘Sistas’ core sound is a cross pollination and amplification of women’s voices. Celebrating family traditions as well as addressing the cultural realities of our times (e.g. the pandemic), their fresh and innovative sound is inspiring future generations. Their debut CD, That’s What She Said, received overwhelming acclaim, with Raul da Gama of Jazz daGama exclaiming, “there’s enough energy in Firey String Sistas to fire up a constellation.” Joining the ‘Sistas’ are bassist Belden Bullock and drummer Lucianna Padmore.
