Black Music Renaissance

Die Konzertreihe wurde 2015 vom preisgekrönten Pianisten Kelvin Sholar als dreitägiges Event in der WERKSTATT DER KULTUREN konzipiert und kuratiert, um die einflussreiche Musik berühmter Schwarzer Komponist*innen, Schriftsteller*innen und anderer Künstler*innen zu zelebrieren und ihre Relevanz sowohl für die heutige Schwarze Musikszene als auch den weltweiten Musikmarkt sichtbar, hörbar und erlebbar zu machen.

Durch den überwältigenden Erfolg dieses Konzepts wurde BLACK MUSIC RENAISSANCE fester Programmpunkt des jährlich in der WERKSTATT DER KULTUREN stattfindenen BLACK HISTORY MONTH - mit wechselnen Schwerpunkten. 
 

           

The program will feature a mix of Jazz, Electronic and Latin music; including the music of Max Roach, Abbey Lincoln, Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, Herbie Hancock, Oscar Brown Jr., Bert Williams and Thelonius Monk, Juan Atkins, Jeff Mills, Robert Hood, John Coltrane, Horace Tapscott, Pedro Flores, Mongo Santamaria and others.
