Ghosts Appearing through the Sound: an Abbey Lincoln tribute

March 9, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

| $15 - $20

Celebrating the life, the philosophy, the music, and the magic of Abbey Lincoln: jazz singer-songwriter, actress, civil rights activist, and outspoken black woman, with an evening of music, poetry, and dance.

For two weekends in March, up and coming jazz singer-songwriter Kosi, accompanied by a five-piece band of world class musicians, and the extraordinary Cotton Club dancer CeCeBrownSugah, will be performing a tribute to recently departed jazz icon Abbey Lincoln at the WOW Cafe Theater in New York City. This tribute, called Ghosts Appearing through the Sound, will feature original interpretations of the musical compositions, lyrics, and poetry of Abbey Lincoln, in addition to some more contemporary compositions to which Kosi has lent her lyrics.
