    A new full-length opera by Rhiannon Giddens will receive its world premiere at the 2020 Spoleto Festival in Charleston, then travel to Carolina Performing Arts in Chapel Hill, NC. The opera traces the spiritual journey of Omar Ibn Said, from his life in West Africa to his capture and enslavement in the Carolinas in 1807. Giddens says: "My work as a whole is about excavating and shining a light on pieces of history that not only need to be seen and heard, but that can also add to the conversation about what's going on now. This is a story that hasn't been represented in the operatic world—or in any world."

    Storied musician Dr. John—Mac Rebennack—has died at the age of 77. "He was so one of a kind," Dan Auerbach, who produced the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's 2012 album, Locked Down, tells Rolling Stone. "He could truly be unique, isolated in a way—that special gumbo. We lost one of the greatest musicians who ever lived and also one of the greatest reflections of this country, musically, in one man. He was a human melting pot, a human embodiment of what makes American music great. He grew up with different races and experiences, and it made him the most incredible mutt ever. We lost something that will never be duplicated."

"I'd like to share the piano part for the title track of my new record, for pianists, other musicians, and anyone else curious," he says. "I wrote it as a piano solo piece, recorded that first, and then built everything else on top of it. Maybe some piano players would like to play it? Hope you enjoy!"
