Ibeyi, Sudan Archives and Orion Sun will perform at the Bandshell as part of the American Express Women in Music Series at the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented by BRIC in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.
As IBEYI, the French-Cuban twins Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Díaz send soaring liquid vocal harmonies over an “intoxicating blend of hip hop, electronica, and traditional Yoruba” (NPR) music.
SUDAN ARCHIVES, another genre-defying musical alchemist, “transposes the bounce and swing of R&B and hip hop onto a fantastically original sound that could only exist now.” (Pitchfork) Drawing inspiration from Sudanese fiddlers, this self-taught violinist and singer folds elements of R&B and experimental electronic music into her unique songs.
ORION SUN is the one-woman project of Philly-based singer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Tiffany Majette, an emerging creative force of nature who destined for greatness.
