Safika | Castle of Our Skins | Ashleigh Gordon, Artistic & Executive Director

Friday • December 3, 2021   |   8:00 pm

Free – $20.00

Castle of our Skins welcomes South African Composer Dr. Bongani Ndodana-Breen for its third Music Ensemble in Residence. Highlighting Ndodana-Breen’s works for piano and strings, this program centers around the piano quintet Safika: Three Tales of African Migration, which takes listeners on a journey of forced expulsion, dislocation, and the musical movement of a people from one space and culture to another.

Born out of the desire to foster cultural curiosity, Castle of our Skins is a concert and educational series dedicated to celebrating Black artistry through music. From classrooms to concert halls, Castle of our Skins invites exploration into ​Black heritage and culture, spotlighting both unsung and celebrated ​figures of past and present.
