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
Perhaps the greatest tribute to Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles – the first all-female mariachi in the United States – is that now there actually are other all-female mariachi groups. Formed in 1994, they have taken the history of women in mariachi music from being solely singers to being the full complement of musical performers. Reyna has gained fame from the stars they have shared the stage with, including Vicki Carr, Guadalupa Pineda, Migual Aceves Mejia, and Lucha Villa. With two CDs to their credit, Reyna continues to perform to sold-out houses. Reyna will be joined by the Pacifico Dance Company.
