National Sawdust 2018–19 Artist-in-Residence L’Rain melds the evocative jazz of Alice Coltrane and the lyric virtuosity of underground hip hop into a searing, personal style. Her live performances are “hypnotizing, a wonder of practice and refinement” with “uncommonly tight” orchestrations (Village Voice). In her first residency concert, she presents a new work in development that explores the intersection between music, the written word, and powerful expressions of thought.
