Atrium 360°

Shelley Nicole's blaKbüshe: I Am American

At a time when it seems every manifestation of black self-affirmation-Black Lives Matter, black self-care, Black Girl Magic-is being assailed by prickly sorts antagonized by most things black and self-affirming, Black-on-Black love has become medicine for the melancholy, an elixir crucial to keeping the African Diaspora sane and forward-moving. Shelley Nicole-the mainspring behind Shelley Nicole's blaKbüshe-is simultaneously a product, a witness, and architect of Black-on-Black love, a calling that has informed her work as a singer, writer, composer, actor, poet, musician, and healer. It is the taproot of her latest work, I Am American, a collection of songs written by her and produced by award-winning guitarist, composer, and producer Vernon Reid of the band Living Colour.

I Am American harkens back to the Golden Age of classic albums that embraced collaborative energy from diverse, paramount artists. The album is forged from the connective tissue of rock, soul, blues, jazz, and funk into a seamless, genre-defying blend while tackling the hard questions of women reclaiming their cultural identity, their psychic refuge, and their personal agency. The project is part of the continuum of audacious, self-confident, and eclectic Black sisterhood that extends from Rosetta Tharpe, Nina Simone, and Betty Davis to Labelle, Joan Armatrading, and Meshell Ndegeocello.

Philharmonic Insights at the Atrium

Fact or Fiction? Amadeus and the Portrayal of an Artist

Miloš Forman's 1984 film adaptation of Peter Shaffer's play Amadeus stands as the most vivid, powerful, and controversial composer biopics of all time, winner of eight Oscars, including Best Picture. Ahead of the Philharmonic's presentation of Amadeus-Live (April 11-14 and 17, conducted by Richard Kaufman), Leonard Bernstein Scholar-in-Residence Michael Beckerman debates the issues, ideas, and ethics of Amadeus. Actor F. Murray Abraham-who won the Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of Salieri-is a special guest.

Outside (In)dia

Martha Redbone

Appalachian and Native American song is at the root of American music. Today, their songs and struggle are particularly relevant, and Martha Redbone is a clear and beautiful voice that represents these deep musical traditions. Her music flows equally from her own unique, award-winning blend of Native American elements with funk, incorporating her deep roots in Appalachian folk and Piedmont blues favored by the matriarchy that raised her on a rich sojourn from Clinch Mountain, Virginia, to Harlan County, Kentucky, and beyond to Brooklyn's Dodge City-esque mean streets. Tonight, Martha's ensemble joins with Brooklyn Raga Massive's community of Indian music-inspired artists to highlight both the roots and contemporary interpretations of these traditions.

Presented in collaboration with The India Center Foundation and Brooklyn Raga Massive
