Lincoln Center Festival 08 Presents Damon Albarn & The Honest Jon’s Revue
Published June 24, 2008

Presented by Lincoln Center Festival 08, Damon Albarn & the Honest Jon’s Revue presents audiences with a splendidly diverse group of artists who has one thing in common: each has recorded for Honest Jon’s, the independent London-based label.

 

Damon Albarn co-founded the Honest Jon’s label in 2002 with the landmark record shop on Portobello Road that has been selling rare and obscure music to discerning buyers for 30 years. The Honest Jon’s label reflects the founders’ interests, primarily African music, Jamaican reggae, and classic American soul.

 

Among those who will be performing is African drummer Tony Allen. A co-creator of Afrobeat, Allen is one of today’s most distinctive and in-demand drummers. He is capable of fusing jazz with highlife sensibilities and sounds. Honest Jon’s Records recently released an album of remixes of Allen’s work featuring artists Diplo, Carl Craig, and Bonde do Role. Singer/ songwriter Victoria Williams made her solo recording debut in 1987 with Happy Come Home. Covers of her songs have been performed by Pearl Jam, Lou Reed, Matthew Sweet, The Jayhawks, and Soul Asylum. Also making an appearance will be singer, guitarist, and composer Afel Bocoum. His work blends different ethnic languages, rhythms, and melodies, and he is rapidly becoming one of the most powerful voices of the region.

 

The Festival has presented a wide variety of world fusion, hip hop, jazz, and pop music—including traditional and contemporary music from North and South Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East—in addition to showcasing artists as diverse as Elvis Costello, Wyclef Jean, Ornette Coleman, Goran Bregovic, and Youssou N’Dour.
