Black Joy in the Hour of Chaos Listening Session – June 17, 2016 | 7:00pm – 9:00pm

by Welcome to Harlem

Join Harlem Stage and Jooksi as they use music as a springboard for dynamic dialogue through a participant driven listening session exploring the singular and intersecting themes of blackness, joy and chaos. Listening Session participants include Kimberly Nichole, Dr. Aja Burrell Wood, DJ OP! (I Love Vinyl), Ayoinmotion and Piper Anderson. Music spun by DJ Raydar. The listening session will be complemented by food and drink and guided by ethnomusicologist and visiting associate professor of Jazz Studies at Oberlin College, Dr. Fredara M. Hadley.

Drawing inspiration from Public Enemy’s “Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos,” music has served as one of the cornerstones of Black Joy in the Hour of Chaos, a cycle of musical, dance, and spoken word poetry performances that evoke “Black Joy” under a parachute-turned-performance space. We will cover artists like Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus, Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Parliament, D’Angelo, Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu and more as we collaboratively generate a communal soundtrack for Black Joy in the Hour of Chaos.
