One of the most forward-thinking creative voices of her generation
shares a public lecture to be live streamed INTERNATIONALLY
A singer, songwriter, producer and actress, Janelle Monáe has been electrifying audiences with her hybrid brand of Afrofuturist funk, soul and R&B since her 2010 debut LP The ArchAndroid. Most recently, the Kansas City native and Wondaland label head has starred in two award-winning films, Moonlight, and Hidden Figures, and released 2018s critically-acclaimed audiovisual piece Dirty Computer. A fierce activist in her public life, Monáe uses science fiction and sonic elements from various styles and genres to explore themes of race, class, and sexuality which has established her as one of the most forward-thinking creative voices of her generation. As part of Red Bull Music Festival Berlin, we welcome the musical android to the former silent movie theatre Delphi for a public lecture about her life and career.
Janelle Monáes conversation will be live streamed online globally via Red Bull Music’s Facebook and YouTube starting today, Friday, September 14th at 2 pm EDT (11 am PDT / 8 pm CET). The live lecture broadcast will have an approximate duration of 60 minutes and will be available for the next 24 hours.
