The first show with the Robert Glasper Electric Trio live stream is scheduled for Friday, October 8 at 8pm EDT and will feature guest appearances from Burniss Travis, Justin Tyson, and DJ Jahi Sundance live on stage with Glasper.
Additionally, Dinner Party, named for the artist’s 2020 critically-acclaimed self-titled release, has the Robert Glasper Electric Trio teamed up with long-time collaborator, co-producer, and creative partner Terrace Martin, as well as Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah. Dinner Party will stream on Friday, October 29 at 8pm EDT.
Tickets for both On Air streams are available for purchase here.
Robert Glasper is the leader of a new sonic paradigm whose work and accolades bridge all aspects of the music business — from live touring to film scoring, composing and producing. To date, he boasts four Grammy wins and nine nominations across eight categories, and an Emmy Award for his song for Ava Duvernay’s critically hailed documentary 13th with Common and Karriem Riggins. Glasper is entrenched as the musician of choice for some of the world’s most iconic artists including Kendrick Lamar, Herbie Hancock, Mos Def, Bilal, Ledisi, Lupe Fiasco, Kanye West, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Kaytranda, and more. With boundless innovation and elite technique as his signature, it’s no surprise that Glasper has an avalanche of accolades, awards, and achievements to his name. He’s an artist at the heart of a moment — and a movement — to champion Black music, Black people, and the possibility of a better future.
