Cultural Power: Music

Vijay Iyer and DJ Rekha

moderated by Greg Tate

Acclaimed jazz pianist and composer Vijay Iyer is joined by music sensation DJ Rekha for a discussion about music, power, and art in this third cultural power conversation. Vijay Iyer's music draws from a range of Western and non-Western traditions, and his recordings include Reimagining (2005), and Tragicomic (2008), among many others. DJ Rekha's debut album DJ Rekha Presents Basement Bhangra features the same blend of South Asia's traditional Bhangra music and Hip-Hop that made her monthly dance party Basement Bhangra famous. Moderated by Greg Tate, art, music and culture critic and author of the forthcoming biography James Brown Body. Introduced by music critic Gary Giddins.
