K. Curtis Lyle Presenting Benefit for Zimbabwe Nkenya on Tuesday, May 11

SOURCE: Published: 2010-05-08
Poet K. Curtis Lyle and collaborators will present “Barackutopia," a performance piece paying tribute to and benefiting bassist Zimbabwe Nkenya, at 8 p.m. this Tuesday at the Kranzberg Arts Center. Lyle will perform his own poetic text, accompanied by sound designer, musician and multimedia artist David A.N. Jackson, bassist Josh Weinstein, and a score by Baikida Carroll.

Admission is free, but donations will accepted at the door and will go to Nkenya, who suffered a stroke in November and still faces daunting medical bills as well as a long recovery process. St. Louis American editor Chris King has a feature story here with more details on the event and Nkenya's ongoing struggles.
