REMEMBERING MARTIN LUTHER KING

Friday, April 20 - 7:00 pm
MuSa Rehearsal Hall, Rectorate Building
Piazzale Aldo Moro 5, Rome

On Friday, April 20, the MuSa Blues Choir, directed by Giorgio Monari, will hold a concert dedicated to “Music from the Slave Age.” The performance will include work songs, Afro-American and African spirituals, along with readings of classic works and news reports by Paola Nemola and Letizia Angelini.

The event, which is dedicate to the memory of Martin Luther King, fifty years after his murder, will provide an opportunity to reflect on the state of civil activism in a world that is experiencing cultural and political phenomena that aim to subvert the fundamental rights acquired in western society.

MuSa Blues is inspired by traditional African and Afro-American music, including jazz, soul, pop, bossa nova, reggae and samba, together with the percussions of Ruggero Artale and Gaia De Cupis.

Entrance and parking are free.
