Makaya McCraven in Conversation and Performance

Makaya McCraven in Conversation and Performance

Chicago is the place to be for music right now, with a robust and diverse scene characterized by innovations across and beyond musical genres. That creativity is perhaps no better epitomized than in the work of cutting-edge beat scientist Makaya McCraven and his local label International Anthem, co-founded by Scottie McNiece. At CHF, McCraven and McNiece will be joined by artist and musician Damon Locks to discuss our city's genre-defying musical scene, the idea of sonic collage, and how labels have shaped music in Chicago and around the world. Stay tuned after the conversation for a live performance by McCraven and his band.

This program is supported by the Festival’s Creative Chicago endowment established by The Grainger Foundation and is presented in partnership with WDCB.
