    Watch: Rhiannon Giddens, Francesco Turrisi Perform at The Met's Temple of Dendur
    The Met Museum

    Rhiannon Giddens and Francesco Turrisi performed songs from their 2109 album, there is no Other, at the very special venue of The Metropolitan Museum's Temple of Dendur in New York City, joined by bassist Jason Sypher, last fall. The concert received its digital premiere via The Met online last weekend and can now be seen below.

    "This performance is both a condemnation of 'othering' and a celebration of the spreading of ideas, connectivity, and shared experience," says The Met. " Tracing the movement of instruments, sounds, and musical language back and forth from Africa, the Arab world, Europe, and the Americas, there is no Other illuminates the blossoming that's possible when culture flows freely between peoples and lands." What's more, the unique venue "provided a stunning context for Giddens' virtuosity and raw emotional musicality."
