Bandshell

Eventbrite Music Series: Jidenna + Anik Khan + DJ MOMA

Friday, July 26 , 7:30 pm – 10 pm, 2019

Jidenna, Anik Khan, and DJ MOMA will perform at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented by BRIC in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.

“Singing and rapping in his arrestingly incongruous array of styles,” (Rolling StoneJidenna rocketed to pop fame with his 2015 single “Classic Man.” His highlife and hip hop infused 2017 record The Chief, dedicated to his Nigerian father, revealed an artist of substance lurking beneath a glamorous surface. Jidenna has cited KRS-One and Big Daddy Kane as primary influences, as well as Nigerian Highlife music.

Anik Khan’s rapid-fire flow is laced with “genre-fluid harmonies and narratives that explore what lies at (his) core—Queens life and Bengali culture” (Billboard). Born in Bangladesh and raised in Astoria, his music is inspired by fellow Queens rapper Nas and incorporates sounds from different cultures, especially South Asian (specifically Bangladeshi and Indian) and West Indian.

DJ MOMA, born in Sudan and raised in Queens, is a master of connecting the dots musically—his Everyday People party celebrates African diaspora.
