Hazmat Modine _ Moscow, Russia _ July, 2012

 

HM MOSCOW_2012

On July 11, 2012 Hazmat Modine performed an outstanding concert at The Palace on Yauza in Moscow, Russia. It is a beautiful old concert hall with excellent natural acoustics and a huge stage suitable for mounting any project. The interior space looks like a small Carnegie Hall.

Hazmat Modine Russian Tour Day 4

Kazan, Russia to Kiev, Ukraine via Airplane

An early departure from Kazan with five bands and other passengers going through the one door entrance of a small Kazan airport proved problematic. This one door entrance led to a security check point that everyone had to pass to enter the terminal which also had a check point duplicating what was done a only few minutes before.

This of course was very stressful to all…..

In 1927, James Weldon Johnson published the classic God’s Trombones: Seven Negro Sermons in Verse. This seminal work, consisting of actual sermons written in free verse form, sought to document and preserve the unique African American cultural tradition.  Now musician and composer Craig S. Harris continues that work with his opus God’s Trombones. Harris looks to Johnson’s poems for inspiration while creating a musical interpretation of the unique rhythm and cadence of traditional African American sermons. This performance is sure to be a soaring, triumphant musical event not to be missed.
