Power to the People!
One of the most highly decorated Latin artists of all time reckons with broken systems and gives voice to social concerns.
About this Performance
Puerto Rican rapper, writer, and producer Residente is the winner of 25 Latin Grammys®, more than any other Latin artist in history. First rising to prominence with the socially minded rap group Calle 13, his commitment to justice is central to – and inseparable from – his music. He moves gracefully from the heartbroken to the empowered, incorporating traditional Latin American instrumentation and textures into high-powered hip-hop. “Artists have the responsibility to speak out through their work,” he says, and his dedication to education and native rights in Latin America led to his being given the 2015 Nobel Peace Summit Award. This powerful performance with the LA Phil and Gustavo Dudamel highlights the passion and power that’s central to his work – and his life.
Power to the People is presented in collaboration with the California African American Museum. Additional partners include American Cinematheque, A Noise Within, and Power California.
This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Please note: There is a 4 ticket limit to this performance per household.
