HipStory’s resident saxophonist Tim Hall will be performing with GRAMMY-Nominated jazz, soul, and R&B singer Carolyn Malichi Thursday October 20th at the BAMSFest Prelude: “Souls of Women” – perspectives from women of color on arts, music, and social change in Greater Boston. Tim Hall is originally from Detroit MI and started playing music at the age of 10 where he initially was trained in classical and contemporary technique. Because he grew up in a household filled with jazz, R&B, gospel, and soul music he began to experiment with the styles while playing at church. The church is where he began his professional career as a musician, which lead to performing on stages around Detroit and beyond. Tim has performed with musicians such as Bilal, Chris Turner, LaDarrel “Saxappeal” Johnson, Cymaron Dawson, and Aloe Blacc to name a few; and can now add Carolyn Malichi to that list.
Carolyn is from Washington, DC which has a rich history of GoGo, Blues, Jazz, and R&B music. She’s had international acclaim including Taiwan, China, Papua New Guinea, and Japan. She has a vibrant sound that sends listeners to musical bliss, so much that MTV has named her R&B artist “to obsess over”. Her single “Orion” was nominate for a GRAMMY which was on NPR’s 10 Songs Public Radio Can’t Stop Playing along with contemporary R&B radio hits “All Right” and “Fall Winter Spring Summer”. BAMSFest has been putting together incredible shows in Boston, and this one will continue to hit the mark.
“Souls Of Women” is a panel discussion and performance exploring how contemporary, Black and Brown women musicians, arts educators and entertainers, utilize their work, music or artistry to inspire, shift culture, engage and/or contribute to social movements within communities of color.
