When: Fri., Feb. 22, 7 & 8:30 p.m. 2019
February is bittersweet for J Dilla fans. Born on Feb. 7 in 1974, the legendary Detroit hip-hop innovator spent his brief 32 years creating one of the most influential bodies of work through his many solo projects and as a founding member of Slum Village. Dilla, who died of cardiac arrest on Feb. 10, 2006, will be honored in an annual celebration at the DIA. Composer Miguel Atwood-Ferguson has, once again, arranged important moments from Dilla’s catalog to be performed by members of Rebirth.
