UPCOMING: Tamar-kali + Valerie June–12/2, 3

Torch songs, blues and moving performances.

@tamar_kali @valeriejunetn

This looks to be a compelling pairing at NYC’s The Kitchen this week. Tamar-kali does her unique take on torch songs, while accompanied by a killer ensemble that includes Vijay Iyer (piano), Somi (vocalist), Mariel Berger (accordian) and Kiebpoli Calnek (aerialist).

The bill also marks the NYC return performance of Valerie June, who will bless the stage with her organic moonshine roots music.

It’s a night of torch songs and blues, but I expect the performances will leave you recharged.

The Kitchen
512 West 18th Street
