An all-star lineup takes the stage at the Greek to perform the futuristic, synth-heavy electronic music of elusive Nigerian artist William Onyeabor. 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. The show features David Byrne, Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem), Kele Okereke (Bloc Party), the legendary Lijadu Sisters of Nigeria in their first live performance in 30 years, Money Mark, Joshua Redman and Sinkane. The evening begins with a DJ set by special guest Wooden Wisdom (Elijah Wood & Zach Cowie). Learn More
A nine-time first prize winner at the Canadian Music Competition, Lefevre holds two Premier Prix (in piano and chamber music) from the Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique de Paris. Chosen by La Presse and critic Claude Gingras as a 2003 “Heart Stopper” (coup de coeur) for having revived the Concerto de Quebec by Andre Mathieu on the Analekta label, Alain Lefevre’s is well on his way to stardom. Hailed a “hero” by the Los Angeles Times, and a “lightning bolt” pianist by the Washington Post, this “man with a mission” (as the London Piano describes him) has appeared as guest soloist with major orchestras in Europe and the U.S.
