Abraham Inc. Thursday, May 3, 2012 at 8:00 PM Music Center at Strathmore
Aural alchemist David Krakauer, with co-conspirators hip-hop beatmaster Socalled and legendary funk and jazz trombonist Fred Wesley (of James Brown and Parliament-Funkadelic fame), create a masterly mash-up of klezmer, funk and hip hop “to ecstatic effect” (The New Yorker) as Abraham Inc. Joined onstage by a seven-piece cohort of astounding back-up musicians, including Bronx-based rapper C-Rayz Walz, Abraham Inc. will instigate a hand-clapping, hip-shaking, head-bouncing dance party.
Abraham Inc. is “connected with something deep, mysterious, and timeless…as ancient as the sound of the Shofar...yet as modern as the…young hipsters at downtown venues“ (Jazziz).
This concert will run approximately 85 minutes with no intermission.
Please Note: For this show, Orchestra and Orchestra Tier will be unassigned General Admission tickets for standing and dancing. The Promenade, Grand Tier and Upper Tier levels will be assigned seating for those who prefer to remain seated.
