About This Program

TV on the Radio’s artistic polymath Tunde Adebimpe weaves together a universe of song, story and animation in the world premiere of A Warm Weather Ghost, a new work commissioned by the Walker Art Center, Liquid Music and Minnesota Public Radio. Conceived of as a hero’s narrative pushed through a psychedelic fever dream, the surreal work unravels and bewilders as a crew of special guest musicians and vocalists, visual art by Adebimpe, and narration coalesce into a magically disorienting and unforgettable performance.
