The influence of African music is remarkably wide-ranging. Whether the genre is gospel, blues, jazz, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, hip-hop, rock, or pop, so much of the music we celebrate today is rooted in the melodies, rhythms, and spirit of Africa. The African continent's musical reach extends to America and around the world by informing, inspiring, and enlivening all it touches. Curated by Angélique Kidjo and Musical Director Terence Blanchard, this concert explores the extraordinary impact African music has made on every part of our musical landscape.
