CONCERT OF COLORS LIVE AT NIIC
Monday October 21
Free and open to the public and all NIIC attendees
Hosted and curated by Detroit’s renowned Concert of Colors world music festival, this special one-night-only performance will showcase some of the world’s (and Detroit’s) leading artists who have helped burst barriers and build cultural bridges.
Featured artists are:
LAS CAFETERAS, a genre-bending, electric Chicano band that fuses Son Jarocho, Afro-Mexican music and zapateado dancing and lyrically rich storytelling to share the hidden stories of migrant life in Los Angeles;
SALADIN AHMED, an acclaimed Arab American author and story-teller and star of the Marvel comics universe; and the
PATHE JASSI AND SEAN BLACKMAN TRIO, which blends Senegalese, Afro/Jazz, Armenian, Brazilian and Flamenco musical styles with Detroit Jazz.
Don't miss it! First come, first seated! Stay tuned for additional details.
