A celebration of shared experience

“one of American music’s most vitally prolific artists” – Rolling Stone

Tracing the overlooked movement of sounds from Africa and the Arabic world and their influence on European and American music, Rhiannon Giddens (Omar, p 2) and Italian multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi illuminate the universality of music and the commonality of human experience. For a dreamy night in the live oak-canopied Cistern Yard, listen as these two 2020 Grammy-nominated artists play selections from their “thoughtful and ambitious” (Pitchfork) album, there is no Other.
