International Musical Sensation Kaia Kater at Flushing Town Hall
June 7, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Kaia Kater was born of African-Caribbean descent in Quebec, and her original music is influenced by the Canadian folk music of her parents and the years she studied and performance Appalachian music in West Virginia. Her songs are fueled by her rich tenor vocals, jazz-influenced instrumentation, and beautifully understated banjo that have landed her in the spotlight around the world, garnering critical acclaim from outlets such as NPR, CBC Radio, and Rolling Stone. Preceding the concert will be a workshop, an introduction to and exploration of different body rhythms native to the Southern United States, with a focus on African-American hambone traditions. Participants also will learn to create their own body percussion as well as getting to experiment with layering different rhythms on top of each other in order to create a polyrhythmic beat. This is a participatory workshop. No instruments or prior experience required.
