Event Description

The first of two Black Fire Sessions kicks off at The Broad with a performance by Roscoe Mitchell (co-founder of The Art Ensemble of Chicago and AfriCOBRA collaborator) with Brett Carson (world-renowned pianist) to celebrate the landmark exhibition Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963-1983. Joining them throughout the evening are three other Los Angeles-based musicians who experiment with the language of jazz. Busdriver, who ingeniously moves between funk, rap, and scat will perform in Oculus Hall and Georgia Anne Muldrow will present a labyrinth of vocals, keyboards, and other instruments, with her partner, Declaime. In the lobby, Teebs will layer and manipulate recordings into his signature “beat music.” Mecca Vazie Andrews will animate the galleries of Soul of a Nation through three distinct movement and dance pieces.
