Kronos Quartet and Trio Da Kali will perform at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.
No group has been more adventurously omnivorous in its collaborations than Kronos Quartet, and last year’s Ladilikan, with the Malian supergroup Trio Da Kali, is a high point in a career of high points. Inspired by gospel queen and civil rights pioneer Mahalia Jackson, the record runs the gamut “from subtle harmonic counterpoint, to circular riffs reminiscent of Steve Reich’s minimalism, to grander phrasings that seem to join the dots between Malian blues and Appalachian folk.” (The Guardian) The two bands grace our stage, separately and together, for a magical evening.
Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website.
