This coming Sunday, July 27th at 5PM, Dutty Fam Ripley and Ushka are stepping up to the decks at Lincoln Center for Globalfest’s Lincoln Center Out of Doors. The line-up also features electronic Bollywood Raga musician Charanjit Singh who is making his U.S debut and BaianaSystem, who appear on the recent Kafundo Vol. 1 compilation.
It’s a great honor for us to represent on this line-up and we want to give a huge shout out to Bill Bragin, director of public programming at the Lincoln Center and the GlobalFest matermind, who was recently highlighted in the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) for his work scouting talent. He’s worked with a number of Dutty Artz artists before and we’re happy to be continuing to collaborate with him.
In WSJ, Bragin said about his work with global musicians, “All the borders were crashing down…You could do more than just build audiences. You could build community.”
Our work at Dutty Artz very much follows the same goals as we collaborate with artists in their countries of origin from Colombia to Sierra Leone, Portugal to Brazil, and much more to break down barriers and tell larger stories of people and places. All in all, this collaboration of Dutty Artz deejays with the Lincoln Center Out of Doors fest is more than fitting.
