An all-star lineup -- including David Byrne, Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem), Kele Okereke (Bloc Party), Money Mark, Joshua Redman, Sinkane and the legendary Lijadu Sisters of Nigeria in their first live performance in 30 years -- takes the stage at the Greek to perform the futuristic, synth-heavy electronic music of elusive Nigerian artist William Onyeabor. The evening begins with a DJ set by special guest Wooden Wisdom (Elijah Wood & Zach Cowie). Onyeabor self-released eight nearly impossible-to-find albums between 1978 and 1985 in Nigeria, but after becoming a born-again Christian turned his back on his work and refused to speak about it for nearly three decades. Last year, after a five-year odyssey to track down Onyeabor and secure his permission to release his music, the Luaka Bop label issued World Psychedelic Classics 5: Who Is William Onyeabor? The album was named one of Time magazine's top ten albums of the year and Pitchfork's Best Reissue of the Year 2013. Even now, after the album's enormous success, the artist's life story remains a mystery -- and he seems content to keep it that way. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
The legendary Chick Corea returns to Royce Hall, in a duet with long-running collaborator and vibraphone great Gary Burton for an electric revival of their classic 1972 album Crystal Silence.
A constantly evolving artist, Corea bridges every facet of modern music, from acoustic and electric jazz to full-orchestra classical with his distinct, adventurous voice, style and irrepressible showmanship.
Over the course of 40 years, Burton has attracted audiences from both sides of the jazz-rock spectrum. An early progenitor of the jazz fusion phenomenon, he borrows rhythms and sonorities from rock, while maintaining jazz’s emphasis on improvisation and harmonic complexity.
