The Fall 2014 programming season is now underway, and that means a new staff to get to know! Here are the first staff picks of the year – some of their favorite tunes from their respective genres.
Mayowa and Marcelo from International: The AfroBeatles – Get Back vs. Colonial Mentality
In Mayowa’s words, “It’s part of a larger project called the AfroBeatles, which is sort of an alternate reality where Fela and the Beatles merge and travel across the world promoting peace, freedom from political corruption, and lots of other dope things.”
Ivan from Freeform: U.S. Maple – Letter to ZZ Top
Nate from Classical: Leontyne Price sings Samuel Barber’s “The Monk and his Cat”
Star of VFiles’ What The F*shion?!, Status Update guru, pioneer of the comedian avatar, and the brains behind Aboveground Animation, Casey Jane Ellison is an artist, comic, curator and bicoastal bisexual born and raised in Los Angeles.
