The Revolution Vol. 38: lotushalves, Sol Liebeskind, & Ohene Cornelius
9:30pm doors • 10pm show
Much of the charm of a place like Brooklyn comes from discovering what secret events hide inside seemingly mundane brick buildings with colorful street art plastered on their walls. Wandering the streets of Brooklyn’s culturally booming neighborhoods you may ask yourself, “What exclusive functions could I attend if I were lucky enough to be in-the-know?” -Soundigest
THE REVOLUTION is a performance series highlighting Brooklyn & Harlem based artists + musicians that not only represent the core of independent pop culture but who currently stand in the breeding ground of evolution within their genre.
This local musical movement empowers community, change, and activism through performance and unity amongst the arts. Once a month, three different artists showcasing three different genres have a chance to spread love, light, and awareness through their music and their stories. This series supports revolutionary artistry and how important music is to healing, in all aspects of life.
As a part of VOL. 38, The Revolution will feature three incredible live performances from local artists:
lotushalves, Sol Liebeskind, and Ohene Cornelius
Like the oceans that are a constant inspiration for their work, lotushalves knows no bounds. Transcending genre and gender, they live to explore. A Connecticut native, their music is a soundscape of their emotions, a soundtrack to the process of their unlearning. lotushalves’ honest and deeply personal lyrics gives you a glimpse into their heart, which they wear in their music.
Argentinean born, New York based singer songwriter Sol Liebeskind releases her new album titled ‘LOVE CHILD’. This first part, undoubtedly her most genuine work to date, reflects who Sol has become over the years, a matured artist confident with who she is as a songwriter and singer.
While in her first album, ‘Building Bridges’, one can appreciate all of her potential in genres such as Soul, R&B, Funk and Jazz; this work is less about the musical style she chooses to do and more about the things she wants to say, with a simplicity and honesty one cannot help but be touched by’.
