Burning Spear / OneBeat
Oct 3, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm| Free
Two-time Celebrate Brooklyn! alum, and of the most influential Jamaican roots reggae artists of all time, Burning Spear (aka Winston Rodney) is part Rastafarian preacher and part Black historian. His music celebrates his belief that all men and women deserve equal and just rights, treatment and respect, and he shares his beliefs with an avid and diverse audience. The evening will open with OneBeat – an initiative of the US Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and produced by Bang on a Can’s Found Sound Nation, that brings musicians from all over the world together to collaborate, perform and engage with American communities
