On the occasion of the UMMA exhibition Beyond Borders: Global Africa, UMMA presents Tunde Olaniran in concert. Olaniran’s music and performance embodies what it means to be beyond borders, blending dance, electro, hip-hop, and rock. His debut album, Transgressor (2015), “feel[s] like it was recorded by a dissonant, flourishing collective, rather than a man from Flint [...] whose only vocal training is choir practice to boot” (Pitchfork). He was named NPR's Top Artist to Watch at SXSW 2017 and has been praised by The New York Times, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Stereogum, Noisey, Afropunk, and countless others.
The exhibition will be open after the performance.
