Description

Celebrate Black History Month with FunikiJam's City of Hope!

“City Of Hope,” is an award-winning production co-created by Brian Barrentine, showcasing the colorful songs of FunikiJam World Music, featured in the wildly popular FunikiJam music classes, birthday parties, events, and Off-Broadway family musicals (New York Times Pick, “7 Things to Do With Your Kids in N.Y.C. This Weekend”).

New Orleans. Paris. Detroit. In “City of Hope”, Captain Jam and the Agents of Jam go undercover as a construction crew in order to help with disaster relief. They embark upon a mission to New Orleans, Paris, and Detroit where they learn how music developed from African roots evolved into a beloved form of artistic expression around the world. This original musical, featuring a six-member cast with live band, vibrant original music, and lots of audience participation, is presented as part of the FunikiJam Family Musical 2020 Season.

Each season, the guitar-wielding Captain Jam and his live band of musicians, storytellers, and dancers take to the stage and invite the audience to embark upon a musical adventure across the globe, providing children the opportunity to come up on stage, play a drum solo, and sing into a microphone. By the end of every performance, imagination, live music, colorful costumes, and plenty of audience interaction have helped Captain Jam complete the three-part FunikiJam mission: to have fun, to jam, and to learn about the world.

Joining Barrentine’s “Captain Jam” are Kyle Jack and Shawday Graves. Production design/technical supervision is by Maarten Cornelis. Music production by Joe Mazza, with Music Video by Mikel Paris. The live band features Eva Nomikou, Lindsey Weiss, and Kaila Wooten.
