Description

Berklee's Valencia Campus was honoured to host Songwriter/Producer William Bell, Director/Producer Martin Shore, and Rapper/Hip Hop Producer Al Kapone, for a two-day residency where they interacted with students and gave them tips on how to succeed as a musician and master their art-form. They also screened their award winning documentary 'Take Me To The River', which celebrates the inter-generational and inter-racial musical influence of Memphis in the face of pervasive discrimination and segregation. It brings multiple generations of award-winning Memphis and Mississippi Delta musicians together, following them through the creative process of recording a historic new album, to re-imagine the utopia of racial, gender and generational collaboration of Memphis in its heyday. Featuring Terrence Howard, William Bell, Snoop Dogg, Mavis Staples, Otis Clay, Lil P-Nut, Charlie Musselwhite, Bobby "Blue" Bland, Yo Gotti, Bobby Rush, Frayser Boy, The North Mississippi All-Stars and many more.
