“Number One Progressive Drummer”

– Modern Drummer Magazine’s Readers Poll (3 times)

“Best Drummer”
– Rolling Stone Magazine’s Critics Poll

Two-time Grammy Award winner Will Calhoun presents a live world music concert-multi-media event. Internationally known as the virtuosic drummer/composer of NYC’s rock band Living Colour, Calhoun performs his own live electronic percussion loops, and drums and flutes, as he is joined by poet Louis Reyes Rivera, a nightly guest vocalist, and a dancer performing African dance and ballet. Synchronized images and film from Calhoun’s music research expeditions in Africa, Central and South America move in tempo to Calhoun’s rich sonic tapestry.
