Olmeca FREE Bilingual Community Concert

June 12 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Olmeca is a Hip-hop artist, producer and scholar who has been featured on BBC London, Complex Magazine, Noisey, Huffington Post, NPR, Democracy Now and CNN Latino. His music has been featured on various documentaries, including PBS’ “Independence Lens,” and “Two Americans” and a documentary about immigration in Arizona. He has written music for television shows, including “Sons of Anarchy,” “CHANCE,” and “The Mayans,” and he is a teacher of underground Hip-hop in Los Angeles. Noisey Magazine calls Olmeca a “Shaman of the 21st Century.”

Olmeca’ s powerful Hip-hop lyrics, backed by a live band featuring Latin American rhythms will get the whole family dancing during this free community performance. This in-person visit to Sarasota builds off the recent year-long “virtual” residency that launched during the pandemic, with the overall goal of bringing groups together to talk about essential topics and social issues, such as diversity, inclusion and seeing the world through a different lens.
