Join us for an evening of two projects from the multi-faceted composer, guitarist, and activist Marc Ribot, who celebrates his 70th birthday this year.

Songs of Resistance is the duo of Ribot and Ceramic Dog bandmate Shahzad Ismaily (Love in Exile), named for and inspired by Ribot’s 2018 star-studded album released on ANTI-records, with proceeds benefiting the grassroots advocacy organization Indivisible Project, dedicated to saving American democracy.

One of the ultimate New York City party bands, Marc Ribot Y Los Cubanos Postizos became a must-see attraction in the late 1990s, inspired by the son montuno (“mountain sound”), developed in the 1940s by Cuban bandleader and guitarist Arsenio Rodríguez that laid the groundwork for the mambo. Joining Marc for this special event will be Cuba’s own Horacio “El Negro” Hernández on drums, and original members Anthony Coleman (keys), Brad Jones (bass), and EJ Rodriguez (percussion).

“At every turn, Ribot dazzles with both his urbanity and his radical streak, creating a wonder of otherworldly Cuban soul.” – Guitar Magazine

The CHANGEMAKERS series highlights artists who, aside from enriching lives through the arts, positively impact society and their communities via their philanthropic, advocacy, and/or educational contributions and activism.
