The area around the High Line Park was a vital business district of New York City, supplying fresh fruits, French Cheeses and Russian caviar as well as fresh meats to City markets. The hustle and bustle of the streets induced the City to elevate the railroad trains delivering goods to the commercial buildings. When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park.

It’s not the same as it ever was when Grammy Award–winning singer-songwriter Angélique Kidjo reimagines Talking Heads’ groundbreaking album Remain in Light. Influenced by Afrobeat king Fela Kuti, the 1980 record mixed African percussion, funk, synth, and rock. Benin-born superstar Kidjo will bring the music full circle, reinterpreting the entire album with her full band. Ibibio Sound Machine, an eight-piece band led by English-Nigerian singer Eno Williams, kicks off the evening with its high-spirited mix of Afrobeat, club music, and funk. “Ms. Kidjo wasn’t toppling an icon; she was dancing on its heights.” – New York Times “Deep, inventive grooves that hotwire decades of African, European and American music.” – New York Times on Ibibio Sound Machine
