Radical Acts & Musical Deviancy: A Celebration of Afrobeat
Tuesday, January 22, 2019
Join us as six-time Grammy Award winner Arturo O'Farrill launches his four-month artist-in-residence series at The Greene Space.
Tonight, it's a celebration of Afrobeat – a musical genre combining West African musical influences with the sounds and rhythms of American funk and jazz. Joining O’Farrill will be special guests, including guitarist Lionel Loueke (described by O'Farrill as "the greatest guitarist on the planet" and by Herbie Hancock as "a musical painter"), singer-songwriter Wunmi, guitarist Bryan Vargas, vocalist and percussionist Tosin and members of the Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble.
