Neighborhood Concert: Somi

Monday, May 15, 2017 7 PM Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture
URL Copied
East African singer-songwriter Somi returns to the Neighborhood Concert series with her blend of jazz and African music. Somi has been praised for being "serious and seductive" (The New York Times), and her 2014 album, The Lagos Music Salon, reached number one on Billboard's jazz chart. Her new album, Petite Afrique, is a song cycle dedicated to the gentrification of Harlem’s African immigrant community—her most political work to date. She has collaborated with a wide range of artists, from Common to Hugh Masekela, and is a dedicated activist and founder of the nonprofit organization New Africa Live.
