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
“She radiated such concentration and pleasure, not only in the part she was playing but also in the symphony of sound all around her, that watching her became a lesson in the art of listening.” —New York Times
Enjoy a musical legacy started 250 years ago. As Tchaikovsky wrote, “It is because of Mozart that I love music.” To set the scene, Jeffrey Kahane introduces the “Mozartiana” with the gigue and minuet the Russian so faithfully transcribed in his tribute. 24-year-old Alisa Weilerstein’s natural virtuosity and impassioned musicianship will set the arching melodies of the Tchaikovsky Rococo Variations off to perfection.
