Event Description

The Tea: Black Alley

In this new online series, women musicians perform original work via live-stream on the museum’s social media channels on the first Friday of the month. Each session includes a short interview, conducted over a cup of tea, which explores the artist’s creative process. The Tea proudly welcomes Washington, D.C.-based band Black Alley this month, and will be sharing this event on NMWA’s YouTube page and at nmwa.org/livestream.

Black Alley has been pushing the art of music to its rhythmic limits. Determined to create a unique musical elixir, Black Alley has taken the finest ingredients of rock, hip-hop and go-go to create their own genre-bending sound called “hood rock.” The band is one, each musician surrendering to the union of sounds, each delivering music from their soul, while in dialogue with one another through their instruments. Each member of this collective is essential to the workability and funkability of the unit.

The Tea is presented by the museum’s Women, Arts, and Social Change public program initiative.
