Bandshell

Oddisee + 47SOUL + Narcy

Saturday, July 6 , 7 pm – 10 pm, 2019
2019-07-06T00:00:00-04:00
11225, NY, Brooklyn

Oddisee, 47SOUL, and Narcy will perform at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented by BRIC in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.

The Sudanese American MC Oddisee's old school East Coast influences come through in “a light touch of jazz spread over a soul-injected, golden-era hip-hop inflected foundation” (NPR Music). Oddisee released his first mixtape when just out of his teens and has established himself as one of the most positive voices in rap. His latest full length is The Iceberg, released on Mello Music Group.

The Palestinian-Jordanian band 47SOUL's “high-energy music with a message” (Guardian UK) is built around beats that have been bumping in the Arab World for centuries. 47SOUL is an Electro Arabic Dabke (Shamstep) band formed in Amman Jordan in 2013. Their unique mix of the ancient with the ecstatically modern has swept through underground music scenes in Europe and the Arab world.

Narcy, a musician, filmmaker, and journalist, is a central figure in the hip hop scene in Montreal and in the Arab World. He has worked with A Tribe Called Red “R.E.D.”, Yasiin Bey, Talib Kweli, Anderson Paak, Jay Electronica, and Kaytranada. He is a founding member of  WeAreTheMedium, an international transmedia and culture consultation collective.
