Time flies when you're having fun. We have our final Brooklyn Bowl Residency show coming up this Wednesday, November 18. We'll be joined by special guests Lee Fields, Quantic, Sahr Ngaujah (lead in the FELA! musical) and some other musical friends. Raja Kassis's HUMANBEING will open.
The shows have been amazing so far, each one sold out to capacity. Brooklyn Bowl has been taking good care of us and we've enjoyed working with our own sound engineers Drew Thornton and David Liles, who you can hear mixing Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, among others. We'll be posting highlights from each show to our Soundcloud Live Archives page soon.
In the first week, we invited Lorenzo Cherubini aka Jovanotti and performed two songs "Libera" and Melagioco from his latest album 2015cc featuring Antibalas.
See Tina Berardi's photos of the show HERE.
In the second week, Saul Williams came through. He added verse to Fela's It No Possible, and our originals "Pay Back Africa" and "Indictment."
In the third week, Santigold arrived in full force. We did arrangements of her songs "Shove It" and Disparate Youth."
