Radical Acts & Musical Deviancy: A Celebration of Afrobeat

Radical Acts & Musical Deviancy: Arturo O'Farrill in Residence

Friday June 14 2024 • 9:19am - 9:19am ET

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.
