MERCED—No-No Boy in Concert

MERCED—Coming on the heels of his 2023 album release Empire Electric, No-No Boy, the media project of Ethnomusicologist and Smithsonian Folkways recording artist Julian Saporiti and co-producer Emilia Halvorsen Saporiti, is coming to Merced for an evening performance. Called a “Master Storyteller” by All Music, Saporiti’s songwriting examines narratives of imperialism, identity, and spirituality. It tells stories rooted in years of research and relationship-building, made vibrant and profound through a rich congregation of instrumental, environmental, and electronically manipulated sounds from Asia and America. His performances have been called “remarkably powerful and moving,” by Folk Alley and “with gentle, catchy and accessible folk songs that feel instantly familiar,” by NPR – a contrast that gets to the heart of Saporiti’s songwriting.
Along with the concerrt there will be an 11 A.M. workshop at the MAC on Saporiti’s approach to turning history into modern media.

WHEN: Saturday, April 27 at 7:00 pm

WHERE: The MAC Black Box Theater | 645 W. Main Street, Merced

COST: FREE!
