Dance, music and painting provide a loving portrait of the Afro-American community. Four major artists to discover, right now.
Kyle Abraham clearly knows how to surprise us. After the panache of his blend of urban dance, ballet and voguing, first in Pavement then in Live! The Realest MC, he is back again with a work devoted to the neo-romantic concept of “Black Love,” i.e. an Afro-American way of experiencing affection, as both a couple and a community. The leading choreographer of the Obama era is now pursuing his exploration of identity through movement, taking his dancers into the universe of three essential artists. For music, there is D’Angelo & The Vanguard and the album Black Messiah, combining soul and rhythm-and-blues with a relaxed groove and warmth, conveying a message of poetry and political revolution. Love it all!
