YEMEN BLUES

 

 

Yemen Blues coexist in both the past and the present; they are timeless and modern. Fronted by acclaimed vocalist Ravid Kahalani, the group mies the music of Yemen and West Africa with funk, mambo, soul, and ancient chanting styles. Conjuring up a rich and diverse musical palette with the use of percussion, oud, horns, and strings, their myriad influences carry over to the stage, where the ensemble navigates from the boisterous to the romantic and from joyous celebration to anguished balladry. 

Tickets: $30, $35, $40. (CSULA students • $15. Other students • $20.)

Tickets available via Ticketmaster and the Luckman Box Office.

BEN SOLLEE

Known for his unique mix of folk, bluegrass, jazz, and R&B, cellist Ben Sollee has redefined these genres of music with his unique and intricate arrangements. Matched by his smoky vocal stylings, Sollee’s music is deeply rooted in his tales of human experience and emotion. NPR calls his music “an inspired collection of acoustic, folk and jazz flavored songs, filled with hope and the earnest belief that the world is good.”
