Video Premiere: Carolina Chocolate Drops' "Short Dress Gal" (with Luminescent Orchestrii)

After nearly a year of touring in support of their recent album, Genuine Negro Jig, three-piece African-American string band Carolina Chocolate Drops has been busy in the studio recording new tracks.

One of the last remaining African-American string bands, the Chocolate Drops formed in 2005 following the Black Banjo Gathering in Boone, N.C. The members each play several different instruments, including banjo, guitar, harmonica, drums, fiddle, jug, and more.

Today we bring you a live version of “Short Dress Gal” off the new EP, performed with Luminescent Orchestrii.
