The Music of J Dilla

When: Fri., Feb. 9, 7 & 8:30 p.m. 2018

Marking the anniversary two days after his birthday and one day before he died from a heart attack,  the DIA is honoring the life and legacy of legendary Detroit hip-hop artist J Dilla. As part of their Black History Month programming, composer Miguel Atwood-Ferguson has arranged important moments from J Dilla’s catalog to be performed by musicians from Rebirth. As one of the most influential hip-hop artists, producers, and founding member of Slum Village, J Dilla’s emotive beats, and intuitive instrumentals have surpassed cult status, and he is forever remembered as a pioneer.
