Looking for something to do later on Thursday evening? This concert may be one of the coolest things happening anywhere on campus. It’s pretty much only at Wesleyan that you can see a concert of double bass and throat singing. Bring a few bucks in cash for a donation. More information below:
A new concert series featuring diverse members of the Wesleyan community playing music from around the world. Anything and everything goes…and we chose to kick things off on Valentine’s Day, so bring your date, partner, pal, or imaginary friend and join us for a night of great music!
First set: Andrew Colwell, throat singing and double bass
Andrew Colwell combines a background in jazz bass with a remarkable facility in throat singing (also known as overtone singing) technique, cultivated through his intense study of the music of Mongolia. The result is unlike anything you’ve ever heard, ever.
Second set: Sam Dickey – guitar, Dave Uhl – bass, Jocelyn Pleasant – drums
Sam Dickey brings a versatile new trio steeped in the sultry sounds of West and Central African music to this Valentine’s Day show. With the strong jazz background of each musician, this band can go in a multitude of directions…just make sure to bring your dancing shoes!
