Some people say Brooklyn Circle is badass. Some say Brooklyn Circle is pure sex. Others say BkC is the world’s new power trio. It has even been said they “are at the forefront of eclipsing the sun.” Choice of words aside, BkC is a stand-out musical trio of three psychically connected and improvising musicians living in New York City. With over a decade of sound unification, the co-led group has an inner core of Stacy Dillard on saxes, Diallo House on bass, and Ismail Lawal on drums.
These musical, spiritual and philosophical brothers have honed their unique talents to bring the world a new spectrum of lyrical, rhythmic, and original compositions that are consistently timeless - but what makes them great is their connection that lies beneath the notes: a musical unity and symbiotic assembly that fits each instrument’s song together without sacrificing any individuality. This near telepathic rapport keeps their music supple and agile without sacrificing any of its strength or power. Slightly mischievous and intensely fun, BkC conjures a musical experience that is high-spirited and deeply felt.
A free flowing jazz/hip-hop expression. A rotating cast of instrumentalists, vocalists and emcees jam on deep grooves providing an unforgettable experience. Tightly improvised riffs coupled with intense NYC rapping provides a breath of fresh air that is high-spirited and deeply felt. Don’t miss this authentic underground urban music powerhouse.
