Rock, Roll, and Japanese Drumming (NYC)
The Schimmel’s Pace Presents season is taking you from the deep roots of rock and roll to the stunning showmanship and beats of the Yamato drummers.
Deep Roots of Rock and Roll: Black Rock Coalition
Saturday, November 23
The Black Rock Coalition Orchestra, under the artistic and musical direction of the incomparable Toshi Reagon, explores the origins and deep roots of rock and roll with a multimedia journey that traces the music back to such progenitors as Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, and Bo Diddley, among others.
Members of the evening's all-star BRC Orchestra lineup have won Grammy Awards, OBIE Awards, been inducted into the Rhythm and Blues Foundation Hall of Fame, and performed with dozens of major pop, rock, and R&B stars. Performers will include Toshi Reagon, Nona Hendryx, Corey Glover (of Living Colour), Marc Anthony Thompson aka Chocolate Genius, Tamar-kali, Karma Mayet Johnson, and much more.
Poet/performer Carl Hancock Rux is your radio DJ for the evening, replicating the transmission of the culture along and across racial, generational, and socioeconomic lines. With a killer backing band and an impressive parade of special guests, this exciting, soul-rousing, foot-tapping performance will forever re-contextualize how we hear, see, and define rock and roll.
Rojyoh, the Beat on the Road: Yamato the Drummers of Japan

On their 20th anniversary world tour, Yamato the Drummers of Japan are going to take you on a wild ride!

Don’t miss this evening of incredible musical expertise, athleticism, and stunning showmanship!
