CHARLESTON, SC (FOX 24 NEWS NOW) – Today’s Lowcountry cuisine is deeply rooted in its history. It was created out of a blend of cultures from faraway lands, kept alive by the hands of generation after generation.

Ray DeeZy, a local musician and rapper, has created a project that honors Gullah Geechee culinary traditions by getting to know the people responsible for preserving and nurturing their unique culture.

The EP, “When It All Boils Down”, is DeeZy’s first major production since he returned to the Lowcountry. He recently released a webisode series called “From the Sea to the Table”, which feeds into the upcoming release.

Both of these projects include the voices of crabbers, seafood market vendors, the chefs that cook the dishes, home cooks, and of course, those who eat the cuisine.

DeeZy will be hosting a release party for “When It All Boils Down” this coming Saturday.

When It All Boils Down Release Party Details:

– Saturday, November 3
– 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
– Fair Deal Grocery “The Spot 47”
– General admission is free
– EP Listening Session tickets are $10
