Carib Parlor Notes

This pioneering artist in-formance is a music and art series that transforms the interview

format. The visually stimulating and intimate setting is designed to give listeners access to

the featured performer in the embrace of a cozy Brooklyn parlor. In this way, the artist and

musicians share the spotlight with a small audience. The experience opens with a live

concert immediately followed by facilitated conversation. Those curious thoughts and

questions you were stimulated to ask can be clarified in this relaxed exchange of artist and

audience. It is also a unique opportunity for young audiences to interact with and be

introduced to the works of established and emerging artists.

Carib Parlor Notes is a collaborative, curatorial effort from Ron Reid Music and Caribnb
(Terah and Hazel Beckles-Younglao). This initiative proposes to stimulate a forum for
exposure and sharing among artists, thinkers, creators, educators, and the broader

Comment Wall
