BLACK MUSIC RENAISSANCE goes Black History Month

 

In February every year, numerous countries around the world celebrate Black History Month by organising Black cultural and historical events. The WERKSTATT DER KULTUREN is also contributing to the visibility of Black culture, history and contemporary life with a range of different events.

In February 2018, Kelvin Sholar is curating the four-part concert series BLACK MUSIC RENAISSANCE in honour of the 150th birthday of W.E.B. Du Bois, (Black civil rights activist, philosopher, journalist and pacifist). He follows the connections between jazz and other musical styles from the African diaspora, such as rap, with music from the Arab-speaking world and Eurasia.

In cooperation with Werkstatt der Kulturen, award-winning Black American pianist Kelvin Sholar presents the third installment of BLACK MUSIC RENAISSANCE: a four-day powerhouse event with the goal to celebrate the common threads of rhythm, harmony and melody that unites all music of the African diaspora with music from the Americas and Eurasia.

Kelvin Sholar is a musician that knows no stylistic boundaries. He has won over ten awards for music and appeared on over one hundred recordings, in wildly ranging styles. Sholar is featured in live performances by Stevie Wonder, Kevin Saunderson or Carl Craig, Qtip, Nigel Kennedy and many others; not to mention his acclaimed work with original music, or the music of Jeff Mills, Rob Hood, Earth, Wind and Fire- and many others.
