7:30pm – Conversation & Performance with Daniel Bernard Roumain
Daniel Bernard Roumain’s (DBR) acclaimed work as a composer and performer spans more than two decades, and has been commissioned by venerable artists and institutions worldwide. “About as omnivorous as a contemporary artists gets” (New York Times), DBR is perhaps the only composer whose collaborations traverse the worlds of Philip Glass, Bill T. Jones, Savion Glover and Lady Gaga. Known for his signature violin sounds infused with a myriad of electronic and urban music influences, DER takes his genre-bending music beyond the proscenium.
Listen to DBR’s infused sounds here!
9:00pm to Midnight – DJ Jephté Guillaume – Tet Kale Records / Spiritual Life Music
