Regina Carter interview by Nadia Imafidon

Jazz violinist Regina Carter is bringing the music from her latest African-inspired album to the Lied Center on 7:30 p.m. Friday. In “Reverse Thread,” an accordion and a kora — West African harp — are added to the mix to showcase Carter’s interpretation of traditional melodies from different areas in Africa. A MacArthur Fellow from Detroit, Carter has performed with several symphony orchestras and artists such as Aretha Franklin, Lauryn Hill, Billy Joel, Kenny Barron and Mary J. Blige.
