Seattle Black Arts and Culture: Kassa Overall
February 13 @ 5:00 pm - February 15 @ 7:00 pm PST
BEHIND THE BEAT
with Kassa Overall
February 13 – 15, 2023
5:00 – 7:00 PM PST
Kassa Overall returns to Seattle’s Hub for Black Arts and Culture for the next installment of his 4-part series, BEHIND THE BEAT
Kassa is working hard to shed new live material from his upcoming album for a world tour, starting with a Tiny Desk Concert at NPR in Washington, DC in late February. As he prepares this new material with his band, Kassa is opening his rehearsals (although recording will not be permitted), so you can glimpse his process, including the practical challenges that Kassa faces preparing a live show, including combining electronic and acoustic elements, leading a band, and designing the arc of a set.
For these sessions, Kassa will be joined by the keyboardist Ian Fink (Common, Karriem Riggins, Shigeto), multi-instrumentalist Tomoki Sanders (Pharoah Sanders, Maurice Brown), and percussionist Bendji Allonce (Ms. Lauryn Hill, Miley Cyrus).
