Talib Kweli Def Poetry Jam- October 19

TALIB KWELI is one of the most admired and respected rappers of his time, best evidenced by Jay-Z's famous Black Album rhyme: "If skills sold, truth be told/I'd probably be, lyrically, Talib Kweli."

TALIB KWELI’s buzzworthy duo act IDLE WARSHIP, with singer/songwriter RES, will make its anticipated Florida debut at the Center’s Knight Concert Hall. In 2009, the famed rapper joined longtime collaborator RES to form IDLE WARSHIP. The hip-hop/electro group released their first official album, Habits of the Heart, in November 2011. In a bold and indefinable mash-up of influences, the 12-track album uniquely mixes hip-hop, electronic and alternative music.

Accompanying IDLE WARSHIP will be a nine-piece chamber orchestra headed by local conductor and composer, Sam Hyken.  Hyken, who has more than 10 years of experience in the orchestral world, having played and taught at New World Symphony as well as the Miami Symphony Orchestra (MISO), will lend his symphonic ear as he and his eight classical players join IDLE WARSHIP to create an unconventional way of listening to hip-hop. This performance will mark the first time that TALIB KWELI works with an orchestral section.
