about

Live on Juneteenth. Detroit Youth Volume + their mentors from Musique Noire & Polyfold Collective performing at N'Namdi Gallery, in the historically jazzy Sugar Hill Arts District of Detroit.

"The Detroit Way" is jazz musicians passing down knowledge to the next generation. DYV engaged in The Detroit Way February - June 2017 during a Jazz Violin "The Detroit Way" workshop series.

Featured teaching artists include Marion Hayden (bass), Michelle May (violin), Leslie DeShazor (viola), Michael Malis (keys), and Matt Daher (drums). They are performing alongside their students.

Jessica Care Moore, local poet and mother of a violinist, is MC.

This was a Knight Arts Challenge project and part of the Aetlier program at N'Namdi, which teaches students the skills needed to run an art gallery.
