Entertaining, contemplative and enlightening, this immersive concert experience from No-No Boy (Julian Saporiti) and collaborator Emilia Halvorsen Saporiti illuminates hidden Asian American histories through folk songs, sound pieces, live projections, and storytelling in a performance celebrating the new album ‘Empire Electric.’

Released by Smithsonian Folkways, ‘Empire Electric’ incorporates American folk sounds, Asian instruments, electronics, and field recordings to craft stories drawn from Saporiti’s Vietnamese American identity and research from archives, oral histories, and site visits, while also examining the complex topics of spirituality, intergenerational trauma, and imperialism.

A reception will follow the concert where audience members can continue the conversations sparked by the show.
