  3. Sound of (Black) Music

The hills are alive with the sound of Black music! Experience the songs from one of the most beloved American musical classics as reimagined through an Afrofuturistic lens, led by a dynamic group of musicians and vocalists, including Brianna Thomas, Chareene Wade, Vuyo Sotashe, and more. The uplifting spirit of Black roots music ripples through this production, curated by jazz vocalist Michael Mwenso and producer Jono Gasparro in association with Electric Root. Conceived as a central production within a platform to create a creative healing space for a troupe of predominantly BIPOC artists, the community engagement behind this follows the same intention behind previous tours — ‘HARLEM 100’ & ‘WE SHALL OVERCOME.’ Join us for one-night only!
