Harlem 100 featuring Mwenso & The Shakes: Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance

October 24, 2019 7:30 – 9:30 p.m.

“Take Harlem’s heartbeat, Make it a drum beat.” - Langston Hughes 

Created in collaboration with the National Jazz Museum in Harlem, Harlem 100 is a multimedia show that captures the sights and sounds of Harlem when legendary artists such as Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, Langston Hughes and Billie Holiday made Harlem the cultural center of the country.

Hosted by Michael Mwenso, Harlem 100 presents today’s most exciting Harlem musicians and dancers in a modern variety show, paying homage to great performances at the Apollo Theater, the Cotton Club and other celebrated venues of the Harlem Renaissance.

For a deeper look at this high-energy ensemble, take a look at this Jazz Night in America video produced by NPR. Learn more about Mwenso and The Shakes at their website and on Facebook.
