Poised to release her first album since her husband’s death, Corinne Bailey Rae is giving her first New York City performance in years on Monday December 7 at Hiro Ballroom showcasing a whole new sound that is garnering rave reviews. Naturally the show has been sold out for weeks, but for our community we have managed to save a few tickets for the lucky winners who can answer some questions.
Legend of the world music scene Baaba Maal released his new album Television this summer. To celebrate the release, Palm and Giant Step are launching a competition to find a new, fresh remix of the album’s high-energy track “International”.
Baaba sees language as an instrument and he searches for different ways to diversify his music- this newest album Television is a collaboration with New York’s Brazilian Girls, who helped him blend West African musical traditions with electronic dance music – the challenge is to keep the spirit of experimentation and fusion alive to create an innovative remix.
So if you’ve got creativity flowing through your veins, and a love of moulding music to make your own, this is the competition for you!
