Black Music Renaissance 3 goes BLACK HISTORY MONTH

Every year in February, Black History Month is celebrated in numerous countries, with events focussed on Black culture and history. The WERKSTATT DER KULTUREN is also taking part, with various events that make Black culture, history and current topics visible. In February 2017, we are organizing the four-part BLACK MUSIC RENAISSANCE, in cooperation with the award-winning pianist Kelvin Sholar, for the third time. Starting on the 3rd of February 2017, we will be presenting classical and unique musical styles from the African diaspora in the Americas and Eurasia: hiphop, blues, work songs, jazz, reggae, soul, rock, Romanian tango, African Latino dance and Detroit literature.
