Sunday, September 22, 2013
Yoko Ono has always pushed the boundaries of art, culture, and politics. At 80 years old she's still an active, daring artist and musician, and a provocative public figure. Her relationship with John Lennon of The Beatles is one of the most prominent love stories of our time. She has helped shape our cultural landscape.
Now the controversial legend joins David Garland to present her newest work, the album Take Me to the Land of Hell. The album's music, produced by Ono's son Sean Lennon and Yuka C. Honda of Cibo Matto, is varied and edgy. Ono's song lyrics are a stimulating, surprising mix of love and anger, introspection and exuberance. In this show featuring several tracks from the album, Ono talks about some of the album's ideas and themes.
