The Black Rock Coalition Orchestra’s Tribe Called Quest Retrospective
Long recognized as one of the greatest hip-hop collectives of all time, A Tribe Called Quest took the genre to new heights sonically and lyrically by combining street beats with jazz influences—a style and a sound that laid the groundwork for new genres like acid jazz, trip hop, and drum and bass.
As part of SOURCE360 Festival, the BRC Orchestra will honor these hip-hop icons with a program that showcases some of the group’s best work, along with choice album cuts from classics like People’s Instinctive Travels And The Paths Of Rhythm, Low End Theory, and Midnight Marauders. The program will also honor founding ATCQ member Malik ‘Phife Dog’ Taylor (who passed away earlier this year), and Weldon Irvine, a distinguished composer and teacher who mentored the group and many others within the BRC circles.
