Kamara Thomas presents SONGSPELL

Kamara Thomas presents SONGSPELL


Kamara’s SONGSPELL is a musical performance that will turn NorthStar into a mythological space that centers on the storytelling in her songs.


Singer. Songspeller. Storyteller.

"Born in Chicago to a hippie-turned-born-again mother who only permitted her to listen to country/western out of the world of popular music, Kamara Thomas is a singer, songwriter and dramatist that logged time in Los Angeles and New York City. In the latter, Thomas honed her craft playing in power trio Earl Greyhound and twangy side project the Ghost Gamblers. (She also served as the driving force behind the weekly Honky-Tonk Happy Hour series at the Living Room on the Lower East Side.) Performing in the vicinity of her current Durham home with her ace band the Night Drivers, Thomas is working on her successfully crowdfunded debut Tularosa: An American Dreamtime, which explores the Mythic West through a song cycle about a forsaken plot of New Mexico land. It will be a culmination of the first august stage of a storytelling career from the little girl who once eagerly soaked up the voices of Dolly, Emmylou, Loretta Lynn and the 1970s outlaws."

They Do Not Know Harlem: In Communion with James Baldwin

They Do Not Know Harlem: In Communion with James Baldwin

"They Do Not Know Harlem" is an immersive dance-theatre piece that explores the intersections of blackness, queerness and HOME through the eyes of Transatlantic commuter and the seer who has seen much - James Arthur Baldwin. As we voyage through the constructs of home, we must sing a Gospel. We must dance the Juba. We then go tell it on the mountain. And so it is.

"They Do Not Know Harlem" is written and choreographed by Tristan Andre Parks, the child of Mary Robinson-Corley and Christopher Andre Parks. This work is further affirmation to know that Jimmy belongs to us all. Tristan is overjoyed to further debut this timely work in progress at NorthStar Church of the Arts as a prelude to his residency at Duke University's Slippage Lab in May 2019.

This piece was produced in collaboration with young, gifted, and broke with creative oversight by Marcella D. Camara.
