Music in the Triangle presents live music every Tuesday 5:30-7:30PM at 23rd and South Streets.

Trinidelphia has been pleasing audiences with their distinct combination of Caribbean and American styles for over a decade, after meeting in Philadelphia in 2005. Fusing Trinidadian Soca and Calypso with Latin Jazz, Reggae, Salsa, and American top-40, they have developed a sound all their own. Their unique and rhythmic arrangements of jazz and popular songs cast the steelpan in fresh new light, pushing the stylistic and artistic boundaries of an often type-cast instrument. Fronted by Steel Drummer/Trumpeter Chris Aschman and Lead Vocalist/Percussionist Shawn Hennessey, they are complemented by the dynamic rhythm section of Ian Rafalak on bass and Matt Chenery on drumset/vocals. As freelance musicians in their own right, they have performed with artists such as Aretha Franklin, Dionne Warwick, Chaka Khan, Paquito D'Rivera, Bill Withers, Stanley Clarke, Guster, Teena Marie, Joe Piscopo, Jeffry Iqbar, Andy Narell, Lotus, The O'Jays, Wayne Brady, Justin Guarani, and Melody Gardot, and at venues ranging from Philadelphia's Verizon Hall, the Blue Note in New York, and the Queen's Park Savannah in Port-of-Spain Trinidad.  Through the years, Trinidelphia has performed over 750 times at festivals, concerts, restaurants, jazz clubs, beach bars, private events, weddings, and other functions across 8 US states.

July 10, 2021 1:00-2:30PM Algerian Raï Dance Workshop with Esraa Warda at Al-Bustan's Hub


Register today for a Algerian Raï Dance Workshop with New York-based, performance and teaching artist Esraa Warda. 

This workshop will explore the movement of Raï, the popular music of West Algeria. Raï music is rebel blues; it challenges the religious, the colonial, the social, and the acceptable status quo. Consequently, raï has been historically suppressed by colonialists and by the Algerian nation-state. Despite its marginalization, it has been a symbol of soulfulness, freedom, fun, and groove for Algerian people. Students will learn low-intensity rai "groove" through rhythmic and fundamental footwork.

Please come dressed comfortably. Bring a flowing scarf. Beginners welcome. Learn more about the workshop.

Philadelphia’s eclectic music scene is booming with local artists. Every week this summer, their talents will be showcased during small outdoor concerts. In partnership with Rec Philly, performances throughout the month of June will feature musicians selected as part of their Black Music City program. This lunchtime concert series is presented by PNC Bank. 

Today's performer, Kendrah Butler-Waters, is a Philadelphia-based pianist, composer, and vocalist. Her serious and rigorous study of both classical and jazz piano afforded her a Rohm and Haas scholarship at Settlement Music School for 5 years to study with the late Philadelphia legendary pianist Eddie Green (pianist for Billy Paul, Tyrone Brown, and many others). Kendrah’s love of jazz and her faith would go to shape her musical identity.
