Wednesday, June 6, 2012-7pm: Inyang Bassey
Bassey [pronounced E-yang] is an artist who leaves audiences
awestruck by the arresting emotion and raw power of her voice.
Currently featured on four tracks of
Moby’s recent release,
and on his new track “Poison Tree” which she performed with him
on the Tonight Show with
Jay Leno April 2012, Bassey exhibits an uncanny genre
defying dexterity. Her dynamic musical style is exhibited
raucously through her new solo project featuring a revolving
cast of stellar guitarists including Binky Griptite (Sharon
Jones and the Dap Kings), Tony Jarvis (Fela!
and HBO’s Treme), and Jaleel Bunton (TV
on the Radio). For a singer who has been called out by
institutions such as Vogue and Rolling Stone
for her dynamic emotional range, we can only look forward to her
upcoming debut solo recording!
Bassey’s powerful voice can next be heard
with The Roots on
July 20, 2012, 8pm at the Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center
in a tribute to celebrate the 70th year birthday of
the late, great Curtis
