We are so excited to welcome Electric Root, the artists behind “The Sound of (Black Music,” to our Community Conversation on Feb. 4, celebrating Black History Month 2024!
The Anchorage Concert Association is proud to present “The Sound of (Black) Music,” Feb. 8-9 at the Discovery Theater in a production sponsored by Conoco Phillips Alaska.
Recognized among The New York Times “Best of Theater,” Electric Root Presents: The Sound of (Black) Music is a vibrant concert reimagining of the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical through a utopian, afro-futuristic lens of love. Cherished songs such as “Do-Re-Mi,” “Edelweiss,” and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain” are recast through a Black roots music kaleidoscope of jazz, gospel, blues, soul, funk, and Afrobeats.
Co-directed by Shariffa Ali and Kamilah Long, The Sound of (Black) Music channels the singular musical gifts of some of today’s most talented musicians into an overflowing celebration. These veteran vocalists are supported by an electrifying band, bringing to life hope, healing, and the uplifting spirit of Black roots music. Climb ev’ry mountain for one of the most titanically musical nights of the year.
Run time: approximately 1 hour 15 minutes
