Taina Asili is an Albany-based Puerto-Rican musician and activist who uses her music to discuss important issues of her past and present. Asili’s powerful vocals combine with an energetic fusion of Afro-Latin, reggae and rock that motivates people to dance as well as create social change. As a solo artist and with an eight-piece band, Asili has toured North America and Europe, and performed at the 2017 Women’s March in Washington, D.C. She and her band will be making their Upbeat debut.
For its 18th season, the Upbeat on the Roof summer series highlights regional musical talent every Thursday, July 5 through August 30 from 7:00 - 8:00 pm.
Performances are free and open to the public. The rooftop is accessible via the museum elevator or outdoor staircases. In the case of inclement weather the series is held inside the museum.
