Jazz legend Randy Weston visits Brown University for a concert with Kwaku Kwaakye Obeng and the World Music Ensemble. While Randy Weston began his career performing the modern jazz style of his contemporaries in the 1950’s, Weston made a unique and lasting imprint on the history of jazz with his connection of American and African music. This concert features performances by Weston on piano in duet with percussionist Kwaku Kwaakye Obeng and with the Brown University World Music Ensemble.
