Brown Rice Family

Brooklyn-based world roots band Brown Rice Family is a high-energy, eight-member ensemble that combines an eclectic mix of musical influences encompassing reggae, hip-hop, Brazilian, Afrobeat, jazz, rock, Latin, and funk. With members hailing from all over the world, the Brown Rice Family draws on its diverse backgrounds to create a colorful, rhythm-driven, and highly danceable sound. This concert will also feature new works inspired by the song “Somewhere” from West Side Story, written and performed by young people in the Queens community in collaboration with Brown Rice Family as part of The Somewhere Project, a citywide creative learning project that honors Carnegie Hall’s 125th anniversary.
