Apollo Rocks!

I am so excited to be a part of this weekends performances going on @ the Legendary Apollo Theater in Harlem. The beautiful and magical Imani Uzuri, presents her work in progress, Her Holy Water: A Black Girl's Rock Opera. The cast will include amazing musicians, media artist and creative types from all different areas of the art and music industries.

Here is some details on the show itself: " Eclectic, bohemian IMANI UZURI is currently developing an emotionally provocative musical theater piece of the same title as her debut album HER HOLY WATER: A BLACK GIRL'S ROCK OPERA and based on its music. Backed by a caravan of dreamers, featuring a full band with strings and a sweeping mixed-media video montage directed by KAREN M. LAWLER, this rock opera is told through drum-n-bass arias, transformational ballads and soulful rock, while incorporating coming-of-age memories/mythologies from Uzuri's youth in rural North Carolina and anecdotes from her nomadic travels around the world. HER HOLY WATER: is a church revival, a sufi trance celebration, a baptist buddhist, holy ghost, tibetan prayer bead, whirling dervish, emotionally cathartic, sensual often humorous and sometimes heart wrenching journey exploring the deeply intimate spaces we traverse as we find out who we are. Come into her gypsy tent and share in the good news of the universal journey that we all can all travel towards loving self!"

Come peep it for 15 dolla. Tickets are limited because it will be on the intimate Sound Stage.
