25th Anniversary of Erykah Badu's Baduizm with Omar's Hat & Guests

This February, XPN Local and World Cafe Live are once again teaming up for an all-Philly tribute to an iconic album, and this time it's a 25th anniversary celebration of soulful visionary Erykah Badu's debut LP, Baduizm. The record will be performed by eclectic West Philly music collective Omar's Hat on Friday, February 11th - the date the album was released in 1997 - in the Music Hall of World Cafe Live.

Completed with an array of production collaborators from Bob Power, Tone the Backbone and Philly’s The Roots, the album draws from a wide range on stylistic inspiration, from soul to jazz to funk to blues and psychedelia, interpolating it into a mellow and mellifluous sonic tapestry. As XPN DJ and music writer Rahman Wortman put it, Baduizm made genre exploration more commonplace in the R&B of the late 90s, and empowered generations of artists to not get boxed in by musical convention...which makes the stylistically free-flowing Omar's Hat the perfect band to perform it.

Joining Omar's Hat on the tribute will be a roster of guest vocalists, including Lee Mo, Leeyuh Neptune, Justin McCord (aka Cordell),Daniel Joseph Hall-Walker (of Good Brother), Ashley Howard and more.
