KNIGHT CONCERT HALL

The perfect marriage of jazz, Hip Hop and soul, August Greene is the newly formed supergroup featuring Grammy®, Oscar®, Golden Globe® and Emmy Award®–winning emcee Common, Houston-born, Grammy Award®–winning pianist and composer Robert Glasper, and world-renowned percussionist and producer Karriem Riggins.

From the synthesis of each artist’s talents into one cohesive project and the culmination of years of mutual respect and friendship, August Greene is fluid in terms of sound and a meditative offering that speaks to those pushing through the dark for brighter days. Their music can be described as meditative, spacious, and scenic. Throughout August Greene, you feel the abundance of Glasper’s rolling keys, the sheer honesty of Common’s lyrics, and the nuanced subtlety of Riggins’ drum work.

Their music fully encapsulates the black experience: the serenity and pain through which they channel gorgeous art, the beauty and struggle of simply trying to exist.
