ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

- Hi planetary citizens, brothers and sisters.

My name is Ismael Ahmed,

Director and Curator of the Concert of Colors,

and host of WDET's "This Island Earth."

I'm here to welcome you to this year's Concert of Colors.

Before we get started, I'd like to take a moment

to honor the first peoples of this country and planet.

After all, the Concert of Colors

is taking place on their land.

The Concert of Colors was started

by Detroit's communities of color

to celebrate their cultures and the music of all peoples

and to work for peace, love, and justice

for all our communities.

Today, we continue in that tradition.

We'd like to thank all the staff, volunteers,

and artists that have made this year's event possible.

Especially the Detroit Institute of Arts,

who have played such an important role,

as well as the Detroit Public Television's WTVS,

and Detroit Public Radio's WDET.

For this year's schedule, information

and also most importantly, to support our efforts,

go to www.concertofcolors.com,

Concert of Colors being one word.

And now let's take a moment

to thank our sponsors and partners.

(upbeat music)

- Welcome to the Don Was All-Star Revue,

as part of the 29th annual Concert of Colors.

I'm Ann Delisi, from Detroit public radio station WDET.

Every year for the past 13 years,

Detroit native Don Was steps away from his role

as Blue Note Records President and record producer

to come to Detroit as a musician

and music director for this celebration

of music and cultural diversity.

Don and his band of world-class musicians:

Luis Resto, Dave McMurry, Brian Roscoe-White,

Randy Jacobs, Ron Otis, Ron Pangborn, and Larry Fortangelo,

will pay tribute to funk pioneer George Clinton,

in celebration of his life

and 80 colorful trips around the sun.

Dynamic Detroit singers Nadir Omowale, Coko Buttafli,

Apropos, Jennifer Westwood, the Mollywop Singers,

and Dames Brown will be joining the Don Was All-Stars

to perform music from George Clinton's

funkified musical incarnations.

But we're going to start with

the Detroit Academy of Arts and Sciences Choir,

groovin' through the streets of Detroit,

singing George Clinton's funk anthem,

"One Nation Under a Groove."
