IDLE WARSHIP: TALIB KWELI & RES
TALIB KWELI’s buzzworthy duo act IDLE WARSHIP, with singer/songwriter RES, will make its anticipated Florida debut at the Center’s Knight Concert Hall. In 2009, the famed rapper joined longtime collaborator RES to form IDLE WARSHIP. The hip-hop/electro group released their first official album, Habits of the Heart, in November 2011. In a bold and indefinable mash-up of influences, the 12-track album uniquely mixes hip-hop, electronic and alternative music. Accompanying IDLE WARSHIP will be a nine-piece chamber orchestra headed by local conductor and composer, Sam Hyken. This performance will mark the first time that TALIB KWELI works with an orchestral section. In addition, the critically successful MC and gifted hip-hop artist will also perform hits from his solo career such as the crowd favorites “I’m on One”and “Get By,” a track produced by Kanye West. Tickets start at $30.
