NY Folklore at The Linda – Jordan Taylor Hill – An Afrofuturist Experience
March 27 at 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
An Afrofuturistic Experience is a performing arts show curated by Jordan Taylor Hill & Friends. The show includes traditional drumming and dance from the African Diaspora as well as spoken word and song.
Jordan is an artist rooted in traditional music from West Africa and the diaspora combined with todays sounds. His early influence in song writing and performance is coupled in a unique way meant to equally inspire and entertain. Jordan offers traditional drum and dance workshops, performances, and private lessons. The native New Yorker began his musical career tape recording radio segments and instrumentals in his headphones in middle school. Since his first trip to Senegal, West Africa in 2011 his unique style of traditional drumming and songwriting has combined to deliver a fusion of Hip-Hop, World, and all things Afro.
New York Folklore is a membership organization, open to all, concerned with furthering cultural equity and strengthening the understanding of the role of folk and traditional arts in our lives. We support folk and traditional artists, community cultural experts, community-based cultural organizations, and academic and public sector folklorists.
