The Darkly Ecstatic Music of M. Lamar

Sunday, January 19, 2014

M. Lamar combines the ecstatic mood of spirituals with the dark intensity of downtown punk theater, creating songs that address issues of his African-American heritage, American history, and today's social and gender politics. David Garland welcomes M. Lamar to the WNYC Studio to perform, and to talk about his piece Surveillance Punishment and the Black Psyche, and the many topics that inform and inspire his music.
