David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center – 61 W. 62nd Street (between Broadway and Columbus Avenue)
Hailing from the quaint Japanese town of Tsu City in Mie Prefecture, Masayuki Hirano, the visionary musician behind BIGYUKI, creates colorful, spiritually driven electronic music that folds classical music, jazz, funk, hip-hop, club music, and gospel into a kaleidoscopic tapestry of sound. Colorful with power pop explosiveness, BIGYUKI has added his stylings to the live and recorded music of Bilal Oliver and Talib Kweli. He’s performed live with Grammy Award–winning pianist Robert Glasper at a special tribute to the legendary Stevie Wonder, and he frequently collaborates with artists such as Jean and Marcus Baylor.
He’ll perform a free show at the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center on Thursday, March 15, introducing a New York audience to his special hybrid of electronic music found on his latest album, Reaching for Chiron. The album is available on iTunes.
