BAMcafé Live curated by Terrance McKnight: BROWN RICE FAMILYBAMcafé (30 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11217) Map it Free
Brown Rice Family creates organic world roots music encompassing jazz, Afro-beat, reggae, rock, Latin rhythms, hip-hop, and funk. Based in Brooklyn, the band features eight members from around the world—Japan, Jamaica, Haiti, Nigeria, South Africa, and the US. The members’ diverse national backgrounds set the stage for their unique coexistence and musical creativity, which led them to become the 2012 winners of WNYC’s “Battle of the Boroughs” competition. This performance is curated and hosted by Terrance McKnight as part of RadioLoveFest, presented in association with WNYC.
