Originally from the West African nation of Benin, guitarist Lionel Loueke combines harmonic sophistication, soaring melody, a deep knowledge of African music, and conventional and extended guitar techniques to create a warm and evocative sound all his own. Signed by the prestigious Blue Note label, Loueke, who "possesses a gently cascading quality that's akin to the silken lightness proffered by Pat Metheny" (BBC), brings his own band to the Kennedy Center for the first time, after having collaborated closely with Dianne Reeves, Esperanza Spalding, and Herbie Hancock, among others.

Performance Timing:  75 minutes, with no intermission.
