No-No Boy

Presented in collaboration with Asian American Arts Alliance

Free Tickets: Seating is first come, first served.

In this immersive, indie-folk concert, singer-songwriter Julian Saporiti and vocalist Erin Aoyama illuminate the Asian-American experience through song, storytelling, and imagery. Taking inspiration from interviews with World War II Japanese incarceration camp survivors, his own family’s history living through the Vietnam War, and many other stories of the Asian-American experience, Nashville-raised Saporiti has transformed his doctoral research at Brown University into folk songs to bring these stories to a broader audience. Alongside Aoyama, a fellow PhD student at Brown whose family was incarcerated at Heart Mountain, Wyoming—one of the 10 Japanese-American concentration camps—No-No Boy aims to shine a light on experiences that have remained largely hidden in the American consciousness.

Raised in the Dominican Republic, this Bronx-based bachatera brings her big voice and effortless soul to an evening of high-energy bachata infused with merengue, jazz, and more. The self-described “unicornio de la bachata,” whose viral hit “Eta Que Ta’ Aquí” took over the Dominican internet last winter, keeps the dance floor packed with her carefree charisma, feminine fearlessness, and killer band.

Considered one of the most important contemporary vocalists from the Canary Islands, Olga Cerpa and her six-piece band Mestisay (led by guitarist and composer Pancho Delgado) brings a show full of light, good energy, and Atlantic colors to Lincoln Center. The show features songs from their latest album Jallos, which takes its name from the island word for objects the sea throws to the Canary shores. In this case, the jallos are songs from the Americas and Africa, mixed with the folk-roots music of the Canarian Archipelago.

Drawing on backgrounds in heavy rock, metal, and psychedelic funk and soul, this Colombia-rooted, NYC-based four-piece band gleefully fuses cumbia, ‘70s funaná from Cape Verde, kompa from Haiti, guacharaca, dub, and synth into their own blend of tropical futurism. These first-generation New Yorkers—powerhouse vocalist Carolina Oliveros, synth and bassist Prince of Queens, guitarist Niño Lento, and drummer Dilemastronauta—began experimenting with different traditional musical styles during their late-night residencies at Barbès in Brooklyn. Tonight, they kick off the holiday season at Lincoln Center with a free show at the David Rubenstein Atrium as part of the Lincoln Square BID’s Winter’s Eve at Lincoln Square celebration.
