On Thursday (5/2) night, Manhattan’s St. Peter’s Church hosted an edition of the “Devotional Sound” series, presented by British designer Wales Bonner, Serpentine Galleries and Young Turks, in conjunction with the Frieze Art Fair. The evening, which set out to “explore the themes of mysticism, spirituality and ritual established by Wales Bonner’s exhibition, ‘A Time for Dreams’ shown at the Serpentine Galleries earlier this year” included performances from Solange, cult ambient musician Laraaji, jazz/hip hop collective / “art ensemble” (and Solange collaborators) Standing on the Corner, and musician and Gil Scott Heron collaborator Brian Jackson, playing piano. Zora Simpson Casebere and Farah Jasmine Griffin spoke in tribute to artist and musician Terry Adkins between sets. Solange was backed by a full band and had a pair of singers/dancers with her; together they put on a slightly scaled-back version of Solange’s high concept, heavily choreographed live show that had the crowd on its feet and cheering. Watch videos from her set below.

Solange released the excellent When I Get Home, her follow-up to 2016’s A Seat at the Table, in March, and she’ll play at a few upcoming festivals in support of it, including Bonnaroo. Even sooner, she hosts the Performance Space Spring 2019 Gala on Sunday (5/5), which celebrates “galvanizing voices in the fight against AIDS.” Princess Nokia performs, and tickets (starting at $122) are on sale now.
