Black Music Renaissance 3 goes BLACK HISTORY MONTH

Kelvin Sholar presents Jaimeo Brown: HipHop, Blues, Work Songs and Jazz

In cooperation with award-winning Black American pianist Kelvin Sholar we present the third installment of BLACK MUSIC RENAISSANCE: a four-day powerhouse event with the goal to celebrate the common threads of rhythm, harmony and melody that unites all music of the African diaspora with music from the Americas and Eurasia.
 
Kelvin Sholar is a musician that knows no stylistic boundaries. He has won over ten awards for music and appeared on over one hundred recordings, in wildly ranging styles. Sholar is featured in live performances by Stevie Wonder, Kevin Saunderson or Carl Craig, Qtip, Nigel Kennedy and many others; not to mention his acclaimed work with original music, or the music of Jeff Mills, Rob Hood, Earth, Wind and Fire- and many others.

Jaimeo Brown: HipHop, Blues, Work Songs and Jazz

Jaimeo Brown is a drummer and producer whose music has been called “a mix of J Dilla, Robert Johnson, Deadmau5 and John Coltrane". For this BMR3 concert, Brown will blend his fascination with history with jazz and hip-hop influences.
In his group Transcendence Brown has joined forces with Grammay Award Winning producer/guitarist Chris Sholar (Kanye West, Jay Z) to pay tribute to American popular music's beginnings with upcoming his upcoming record ”Work Songs”: it centers around modern reworkings of archival recordings, like "Be So Glad," a track premiered exclusively on Billboard magazine which samples 1959 recordings of inmates at Mississippi's Parchman Farm Prison from legendary ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax.

Brown states that: "The common repetition used in black work songs creates a mantra that changes the feeling of manual labor," "This song "Be So Glad" attempts to really capture the emotions of that process, of experiencing a spiritual breakthrough in the midst of struggle.”
