From the roots of slavery to current-day rallies, humankind have witnessed injustices that have plagued ‘civilized’ communities since the beginning of time. Laments of rage have led to music that have fostered expressions of justice, highlighting paths toward lasting legacies. Melodious jubiliees and sorrow songs, formulate many of today’s familiar spirituals. From the underground to the picket line, from farce to parody, from rogue to rap, music harbors resilience.
Join Jon Batiste as he breaks down the consciousness-raising musical elements that have influenced necessary expression. Inspiration, improvisation, chants, and circle songs.
Live music, analysis and discussion.
