Soweto Kinch: Black Peril

May 19 - May 20

Soweto Kinch

Soweto Kinch is a seeker – a wide-open musician, finding inspiration in the spoken word, theater, dance, and history. The Black Peril, first performed in London in 2019, is an ambitious work, a musical portrait of the fractured world of a century ago, when the Spanish flu raged. Kinch is inspired here by Black classical composers of the early 20th century, by ragtime, and by early jazz in which he hears “a pulsating energy that I identify with Busta Rhymes and Missy Elliott.” Throughout, Kinch’s brilliant saxophone work and rapping apply a cutting edge to this musical journey.
