Hear percussionist Dani Markham perform three brand new songs that she wrote with violinist Sarah Neufeld, best known as a member of Arcade Fire. In the final song of the performance, there is an interlude dedicated to Breonna Taylor.
On this episode, RJ speaks with percussionist Dani Markham. A born beatmaker, Dani has channeled her lifelong passion for rhythm into musical stylings from across the world. In 2014 Dani toured with the indie pop sensation Tune-Yards, forging a unique musical bond with their leader Merrill Garbus. In 2016 Dani joined Childish Gambino, the Grammy-winning stage name of superstar Donald Glover, to bring her sound into their eclectic rhythm section. Between world tours, Dani found time to compose an hour-long drum score for a live dance performance called “It’s Time,” with choreographer Jenn Freeman. This unique concept and composition is just another step in Dani’s ongoing experiments with rhythm and sound.
