Kev Choice to be featured with Vàn-Anh Vo & Blood Moon Orchestra at Zellerbach Playhouse Dec. 5th

2 Dec

Saturday, December 5th, at Zellerbach Hall, Kev Choice will be featured with Hanoi-born composer and Vietnamese traditional music master Vân-Ánh Võ, for Songs of Strength, a three-part suite championing women’s resilience and independence with texts in English, Farsi and Vietnamese. Check more details in story below! Kev was bright on to add his unique, versatile, and socially conscious lyrical abilities, being a featured MC on 4 of the pieces. The band features influences and musicians from Vietnam, Japan, Iran, and the US.

The KQED article from writer Andy Gilbert says:

“More than polyglot, the production is kaleidoscopic, seeking to elucidate universal themes about the struggle for liberation by spinning the artists into unfamiliar terrain. Võ is the overarching conceptualist, but she’s spotlighting several leading Bay Area musicians, including Iranian singer/songwriter Mahsa Vahdat, breakdancer Babatunji “Tunjie” Johnson (who’s also a member of Alonzo King LINES Ballet) and Kev Choice, a rapper and jazz-steeped pianist with a long track record as a creative catalyst.”
