Burnt Sugar Residency at Brown University

The Department of Africana Studies presents Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber for a two-day artist residency that will include a public conversation with the ensemble, a performance and talk at Grant Recital Hall, a two-hour workshop with Brown students and a public performance at live venue Fete in the Olneyville area of Providence. Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber is under the direction of Visiting Professor of Africana Studies Greg Tate, an acclaimed writer and critic for the Village Voice. Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber was originally conceived in 1999 as a forum for the New York area improvisational musicians to compose, record and perform material which reflects the breadth and depth of American and diasporic music in the 21st century.
