Lauryn Hill was supposed to bring her "MLH Caravan: A Diaspora Calling!" tour to Radio City this past October but that show and others were rescheduled and happening this year instead. In case you missed it, here's the premise for the tour:
The MLH Caravan allows me to continue the theme of unity and celebration of the many facets of cultural and artistic beauty throughout the African diaspora while on tour this summer and fall. In these days of tension, tumult and transition, an exchange of this kind can yield direction, expression, understanding and empowerment as well as connection, self Love and appreciation that hopefully overflows into our respective communities.
The Radio City show now happens on February 25. It was originally supposed to have Kehlani opening, but she's not on the rescheduled dates due to her own headlining tour, which hits NYC for a sold-out show at Playstation Theater on February 22. She also plays Governors Ball.
As planned, the show will have NYC-via-Ghana psychedelic soul singer Jojo Abot (who we recently caught at globalFEST), and British rapper/singer Little Simz. Tickets for the Radio City show are still available. Updated dates are listed below.
UPDATE: The Radio City show now also has Common, plus Haiti's Paul Beaubrun.
Little Simz, who released the excellent Stillness In Wonderland last year, also has some headlining dates of her own, including NYC's Studio at Webster Hall on March 11. Tickets for that show go on sale Saturday (2/11) at 10 AM. All of her dates are listed, with a stream of Stillness In Wonderland, below.
