Join MOFAD and WNYC’s The Greene Space for an exploration of the relationship between food and music in Black and Latinx cultures.
Food, like music, is shaped by our climate, socio-economic circumstances, and our heritage. Both are a product of these broader contexts and articulation of our struggles and triumphs within them.
Featuring critically acclaimed chefs, Edward Brumfield and Eric Rivera; founder of YO STAY HUNGRY Syreeta Gates; music culture writer Naima Cochrane; and food history and culture scholar Nia-Raquelle Smith, this panel will delve into the parallels and trends that articulate the struggles and triumphs embodying these cultural forms of expression. The event will also feature the art of burgeoning digital artist Taylor Collier and a cooking demo from Chef Eric Rivera of Addo Seattle.
We will discuss the parallels in how artists’ communities and food cultures are targeted and exploited by outside forces. As culinary tastes spread, they connect disparate cultures – but exposure comes with risk. We will explore how the relationship between food and music in Black and Latinx culture grounds us, fuels us, and inspires us.Buy tickets/get more info now
