Ancestral Communal Listening Session with DJ Elbow Knee Knee
January 17, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Free and open to the public! Musician and educator Michael Mwenso will joyfully guide attendees through the powerful gifts buried within Black roots music and will demonstrate how he actively listens to music—alone and as part of a community
Through this exploration of recorded music, participants will learn to understand that Black roots music contains the Black experience. It embodies the spirit and memory of a people who weave together traditions of the African diaspora with expressions in the United States, the Americas, and beyond.
DJ Elbow Knee Knee of Gorinto Productions will moderate the session.
This engagement is supported in part by a grant from the Association of Performing Arts Professionals ArtsForward program, funded by the Mellon Foundation.
