A legend in the music world and most recognized as the drummer for the rock band Living Colour, Will Calhoun has earned praise for his fearless explorations of jazz, hip-hop, and world music. The two-time
Grammy Award winner’s solo album, Native Lands, was called by All About Jazz, “proof that living in a
diversity of musical worlds can create its own focus.” In this special evening, Calhoun will perform music from Native Lands with a jazz ensemble of special guests, and will also participate in a conversation about percussion in the natural world.

Presented in conjunction with the National Geographic Museum exhibition Wild Music – open until 7:15 p.m.
