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

@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…

WRFB: Talking Restoration Rocks w/ Lisa Yancey and Tamar-kali

…director of arts & culture programming for Restoration Plaza, along with the event’s musical curator, Tamar-kali.  Learned a couple of things: First, the Bed-Stuy Restoration Corporation is the first and oldest community development corporation in the country. Second, October 8 is Tamar-kali’s birthday, so this event is really a big throwdown with all the artists she’d want to see.    So, definitely come through the Do-or-D…
