Red Bull Music Academy has become a driving force in the music world, continuously putting together interesting programing and unique projects. For a sample of this, look no further than their upcoming improv round robin duets.
RBMA and Undead Music Festival have teamed up for their second installment of “A Night Of Improvised Round Robin Duets” at Town Hall in Manhattan on Wednesday, May 14th. This is part of the Red Bull Music Academy Festival New York, which is now an annual event.
One musician will do a solo improvisation for five minutes, then another musician will join them for a five minute improv duet. Then the first musician will leave, and yet another musician will come out for another duet. This will go on for two hours.
The array of musicians in the line-up make this a must-see, highlights include Daedelus, Jamie Lidell, Kaki King, Shigeto, and more (full lineup below).
