The Cedar Commissions Night Two
February 2 @ 7:30 pm$10 – $15
Night Two features: Jo Kellen, Kashimana, and Yigitcan Eryaman
The Cedar Cultural Center presents the eighth annual Cedar Commissions on February 1st & 2nd, 2019, featuring new works by Antoine Martinneau, Brianna Lane, Jo Kellen, Kashimana, Yigitcan Eryaman and Tarek Abdelqader.
The Cedar Commissions is a flagship program for local emerging artists made possible with a grant from the Jerome Foundation. Since the program began in 2011, the Commissions have showcased new work by over 50 Minnesotan emerging composers and musicians, including Dessa, Aby Wolf, Adam Levy, Maria Isa, Joe Horton, Joey Van Phillips, Gao Hong, Dameun Strange, and many more. Artists receive mentorship and financial support to create 30+ minutes of brand new music.
The six featured artists have been drawing from their lives and experiences to create bold new works of music that touch on themes of childbirth, migration, labor, weather, chronic illness, identity, and more. You’ll hear genres spanning hip-hop, progressive Turkish music, techno beats, and four-part vocal harmonies. It’s a perfect chance to experience the next big thing in Minnesota music!
