Legendary Jazz Musician Arturo O'Farill To Present Concert At The Greene Space
On Tuesday, March 12, six-time Grammy Award-winning composer and jazz pianist Arturo O'Farrill will present "Radical Acts & Musical Deviancy: Music of Resistance" - the third installment of his four-month artist-in-residence series at The Jerome L. Greene Performance Space.
The evening will highlight the music of resistance and include performances of The Offense of the Drum, which utilizes percussion instruments from all over the world to explore liberation and oppression, as well as 40 Acres and a Burro, Three Revolutions, and selections from the Little Tiny Walls Suite - a project that interrogates immigration and identity.
Joining O'Farrill will be special guests Quartette Indigo, led by noted cellist and composer Akua Dixon, and Morrocan/French vocalist and composer Malika Zarra, joined by a rhythm section of musicians from the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra. Zarra and O'Farrill will also debut works they'll be performing in an upcoming performance in Abu Dhabi as part of the Cuban-Khaleeji Project, which explores the shared musical heritages of Afro Cuban music and music from the Gulf, Middle East and North Africa.
The Greene Space's Artist-in-Residence program supports artists, curators, and collectives who are remaking culture in New York, presenting world premiere works, and providing audiences with access to live performances and insights into their passions and processes.
Tickets are $50 (includes reserved seating and 2 complimentary drinks) / $30 General Admission. Available at thegreenespace.org
