Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR) Redemption Songs and ...

Presented by FirstWorks at First Unitarian Church of Providence,

“DBR combines a rockstar persona with a musical approach that does for amplified violin what Jimi Hendrix did for electric guitar” -The Australian

One of the most innovative artists of his generation, Haitian-American composer and violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR) is hailed by the New York Times as “omnivorous as a contemporary artist gets!”

DBR’s genre-bending collaborations span the worlds of Philip Glass, Bill T. Jones, Savion Glover, and Lady Gaga. Although classically trained, his music is infused with electronic, urban, and African American influences, leading Esquire Magazine to name him “New Face of Classical Music.”

As FirstWorks’ first Artistic Ambassador, DBR’s work with local artists reaches a joyful new peak in this concert featuring six of Providence’s own creative voices. From Bob Marley to the Haitian and Israeli national anthems, “Redemption Songs” is a composer’s view of our desire to define ourselves, our world, and sometimes, one another.

The Humanist Septet is:

Becky Bass (steel pan, vocals)

Daniel Bernard Roumain (violin)

Christopher Johnson (spoken word)

Kim Trusty (guitar, vocals)

Jerry Wilfong (bass)

and special guests TBA

Part of FirstWorks\’ Raise Your Voice project. Made possible in part with support the National Endowment for the Arts and Providence’s Department of Art, Culture + Tourism.
