A Long Evening with Christian Nyampeta

 

April 8th–May 8th, 2021

Wed-Sat, 12-5 pm

 

Closing Performance:

May 8th, 6-8 pm

97 Kenmare Street, NY

 

This extended meta-concert at Storefront spatializes artist Christian Nyampeta’s recent album, An Evening with Christian Nyampeta. It stretches that brief period of time that sits between day and night, between public and private, between outside and inside, between what the world is and what it could be. Offering a time zone of respite from the exhaustion, loss, grief, and conflict of our current era, it instead imagines a moment of belonging, joy, generosity, and creation in the face of an ever challenging world. In the process, Nyampeta asks a crucial question that provokes a more hopeful future: how do we rest together?
