BAM's Hanif Abdurraqib-curated Spring Series continued at Howard Gilman Opera House on Wednesday night (3/30) with Moses Sumney, who brought his "Blackalachia in Brooklyn" to the venue. His two-hour set was split into two parts; first, he and his band performed in front of a projection of Blackalachia, the performance film he released last year featuring "re-imagined, dynamic band arrangements" of songs from his discography. He came onstage clad head to toe in fabric, obscuring his face, and removed various coverings as he performed. Saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings, who just played Webster Hall with his band Sons of Kemet, joined the brass section for a song, a set highlight.

Monday Mix: Moses Sumney, Lo Moon, Coco

Moses Sumney’s mind-bending performance on “Virile” is a reflection of the power of live music. The song comes from his new album “Live from Blackalachia” (which is accompanied by a concert film). The track was recorded in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Sumney’s adopted home of North Carolina. There, the singer was able to breathe new life into the song, which originally appeared on his 2020 album græ, with the aid of a seven-piece band that brought additional energy to the already amplified track.

Moses Sumney: Blackalachia

Dominic Chambers is Painting the "Soft Shadows" Moses Sumney is one of the most original talents to come into music in years. And within that originality, was his incredible visual identity he established. His videos are like films, his songs dense and theatrical. It makes sense that he is exploring fine art, and his new solo show, Blackalachia, on view at Nicola Vassell in NYC, is a beautiful extension of his output in both film and photography.

How ‘Blackalachia’ helped Moses Sumney become the music artist he wanted to be

When Moses Sumney released his double album “græ” in early 2020, the pandemic was new, and he couldn’t tour, perform in-person, or celebrate with fans. So he recorded his concert “Blackalachia” in the Blue Ridge Mountains, outside his home in Asheville, North Carolina. The singer was dressed in glittering couture and surrounded by nature, with crickets chirping in between songs, and the sound of wind moving through trees.
