From gospel to blues, jazz to R&B, funk to hip-hop, America has produced some of the most groundbreaking and innovative music of the 20th century. Although the music is easy on the ears, its inception occurred in cultural climates that were often discordant and complicated. In Adapting History, musical artist Dahlak uses spoken word poetry to narrate the sometimes tense, sometimes strained history of our nation. This musical chronicle shows that despite struggle, conflict, and misunderstanding, we can still learn, adapt, and be brilliantly creative. 

Adapting History was created in collaboration with and commissioned by Montalvo Arts Center’s Education Department. These performances are its world premiere.
