RAIIWK Joins All-Star Line-up for “Soundtrack 63”
A few months ago, we chatted with married duo RAII and Whitney Keaton, together known as RAIIWK, about there new music, touring with one of world’s biggest performers (Alicia Keys), and married life. Today, we are excited to share that their next major performance will be in Soul Science Lab’s musical theater performance, “Soundtrack 63.”
This nostalgic production is a multi-media musical theater show that renews and remixes popular musical classics that gave context to the Civil Rights Movement, highlighting the revolutionary year 1963. They will perform both original music and popular classics prior to, during, and following the revolutionary year 1963 with new arrangements alongside a dynamic roster of credited poets, Hip-Hop and Jazz musicians including Blitz the Ambassador, Abiodun Oyewele of The Last Poets, John Robinson (“JR”), Chen Lo, and Asante Amin all supported by an 18-piece orchestra. The show also features commentary from Dr. Cornel West and iconic poet Sonia Sanchez.
