“BLACKBIRD, FLY”

A Concert for Voice, Body and Strings

Marc Bamuthi Joseph, Spoken Word

Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR), Violin, Piano

“BLACKBIRD, FLY” weaves together an enduring tapestry of movement, narrative, music and Haitian folklore to engage audiences in dialog about critical questions of our time. Steeped in hip-hop aesthetic, this intimate duet between two preeminent sons of Haitian immigrants — composer/violinist DBR, and arts activist and spoken word artist BAMUTHI —unveils their life stories in search of their identity and role models, and explores universal themes of tolerance and inclusion.

In addition to the Denison community, we are currently able to welcome vaccinated family members of Denison students, faculty, and staff and a limited number of vaccinated community members.
