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

My daughter and I had an enjoyable time; we went to Vibiana (formerly St Vibiana Church) to feel the presence of the angels, still hanging out at the place. It was like going to a mass/worship service but you are praying twice because of the beautiful singing of the choir in a magnificent environment. They are playing this Friday at Oneonta Church at South Pasadena. A must-see!
The concert is a survey of Renaissance polyphony for four and eight voices over the course of a liturgical year. With the complete Mass for four voices based on the rhapsodic cantus firmus Ave regina caelorum — the antiphon to the Magnificat during Lent — by Palestrina as the focal point, we traverse the year with settings of the remaining Marian antiphons and other motets, all for eight voices, by Lassus, Victoria, Guerrero, and Gabrieli. The beautiful chiaroscuro of Lassus’s setting of the title motet, Omnia tempus habent, rounds out the program.
