Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

Join us as we close out David Bowie is with an intimate conversation on the influence of soul on David Bowie’s musical stylings. Award-winning guitarist and composer Carlos Alomar draws on thirty years of experience as Bowie’s music director and a member of his funk rhythm section, the D.A.M. Trio, to reflect on the overlooked but vital influence of R&B and soul on Bowie’s pop career. He is joined by vocalist Robin Clark, whose vocals were first featured on Young Americans (1975), which became a pivotal moment in Bowie’s career and rock history. Moderated by music journalist Christian John Wikane.
