Nite Bjuti

Presented as part of an artist residency with the Black Studies Collaboratory, housed in the Department of African American Studies

Nite Bjuti is an improvising Afro-Caribbean trio tapping electronics, vocalism, bass, Haitian drum rhythms, sampling, and spoken word to create a sound that is “one of the most exciting and original I’ve heard this year” (BBC). Following their performance, the members of the trio—Candice Hoyes, Val Jeanty, and Mimi Jones—will also lead an interactive conversation on archives, sonic storytelling, and collaboration, moderated by Professor Tianna Paschel of the Department of African American Studies. They will also be joined by UCB student dancer Juliana Fadwick
