06-07-2019 12:00:00 06-07-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Ben Pirani & the Means Of Production | 7:00 pm 21 and over RUDY DE ANDA, GHOST FUNK ORCHESTRA Soul music is many things to Ben Pirani: It's positive and it's hopeful. It's a soundtrack for struggle, which is where soul music came from in the first place. That the struggle has been happening largely in the black community is not lost on Pirani, who is white — it's something he thinks about a lot. "I feel really strongly that soul music is precious and must be treated with care and respect," he says. "Anything less is colonizing the funk." That brings us to another crucial point: real soul can't be faked — it's an expression of self that is so much more than mimicry of the sounds that have come before. "It's called soul music," Pirani says. "You're supposed to sing from your heart and your soul and not your record collection." http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=384179 Union Pool Union Pool
