Regina Carter – March 13, 2011

Regina Carter  -  Brooklyn Museum  -  March 13, 2011

We’ve seen music at Brooklyn Museum before, but this was the first sketching.  Violinist Regina Carter received a MacArthur Fellowship a few years back, used it to travel to Africa to investigate indigenous/folk music there, fused it up with jazz and voila!  Called “Reverse Thread”.  The kora player and the instrument itself – which he constructed – are both awesome, and all players were up to the task.  Thanks again to Weill Music Institute.
