Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Langston Hughes Auditorium

Originally from the West African nation of Benin, Lionel Loueke harnesses his deep knowledge of African music to create a heartfelt, evocative sound that features harmonic complexity and original guitar techniques. Praised by his mentor Herbie Hancock as a “musical painter,” Loueke draws you in with his husky baritone, tender falsetto, and fresh energetic sound.

Carnegie Hall’s Neighborhood Concert Series is a program of the Weill Music Institute and is sponsored by Target®.
