Celebrating Cultures, Promoting Integration
1. Kehlani & Guests at The Academy
Kehlani tells it like it is. Whether in conversation or on stage, the Oakland-born R&B singer and songwriter gives the straight truth about her life, pain, passion, love, triumph, and everything in between with collected calm and confidence. It’s that type of honesty that makes her music resonate with the depth of classic Motown and a vividly confessional lyricism reminiscent of Neo Soul.
After having been listed on the top 50 Pop albums with Cloud 19, Kehlani released her second mixtape “You Should Be Here”, which was ranked top 5 on the national R&B/Hip-Hop chart.
After the success of her album and signing with Atlantic Records in 2015, she was named among the “Top 10 New Artists You Need to Know” by the Rolling Stone same year. Kehlani’s high popularity got her nominated for the prestigious Grammy awards for the “Best Urban Contemporary Album” in 2016. Since then, she has been demonstrating on stage the reason of her success.

2. Wild Nothing at Whelan’s
With his album Life of Pause, Tatum delivers what he describes as his most “honest” and “mature” work yet, an exquisitely arranged and beautifully recorded collection of songs that marry the immediate with the indefinable. “I allowed myself to go down every route I could imagine even if it ended up not working for me,” he says. “I owe it to myself to take as many risks as possible. Songs are songs and you have to allow yourself to be open to everything.”
After a prolonged period of writing and experimentation, recording took place over several weeks in both Los Angeles and Stockholm, with producer Thom Monahan (Devendra Banhart, Beachwood Sparks) helping Tatum in his search for a more natural and organically textured sound.
From the hypnotic polyrhythms of “Reichpop” to the sugary howl of “Japanese Alice” to the hallucinogenic R&B of “A Woman’s Wisdom,” the result is a complete, fully immersive listening environment.
