Red Bull Music Academy Host A Conversation with D’Angelo

D'Angelo Red Bull Music Academy

D’Angelo is one of the most intriguing figures in the neosoul era. For all the vibrancy and strength he gave us in the 90s and early Aughts with Brown Sugar and Voodoo, he has been fairly silent in recent years.

The Red Bull Music Academy Festival (commissioners of What Difference Does it Make?) in New York this spring plans to break that silence!

A direct quote from the events page:

“Michael Eugene Archer revolutionized soul music like few others. As part of the Soulquarian movement, and friend and collaborator to Questlove, Lauryn Hill and Raphael Saadiq, D’Angelo carried on the legacy of Marvin Gaye and Prince, while fusing it with an off-kilter beat flourish akin to that of J Dilla. One of the world’s most celebrated performers, the Voodoo child will descend upon Brooklyn Museum for an intimate public lecture session, moderated by author, filmmaker and critic Nelson George.”

While the tickets to the event are currently sold out, check in on the event page or the Facebook page to find out how you can still “Join In” on the goodness!
