Helado Negro 

When: Fri., Oct. 28, 8 p.m. 2016
Roberto Carlos Lange, the son of Ecuadorian immigrants, fuses together English and Spanish, kraut rock, and classic electronica, to create his limitless, genre-defining sound. Lange is a nonstop artist. He’s constantly collaborating with the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Mikael Jorgenson (Wilco), Mouse on Mars, and the sculptor David Ellis. He has a degree in computer art and animation, and is always experimenting with new ways to create. He has worked with sculpture, video, performance and sound. Yet, he is never satisfied enough to stop. He has the itch to keep doing, to keep making. His art is serious and introspective, and since his 2010 album Pasajero, he has drawn listeners into his creative world. Raised in the never-ending heat and volatile weather of hurricane-prone Southern Florida, Lange grew up in a hotbed of Latin American culture, which has played a huge role in his artistic development. His September single, “It’s My Brown Skin,” touches on accepting diversity and is especially poignant in today’s political climate. This renaissance man is a must-see for fans and for anyone looking to broaden their musical horizons. Show starts at 8 p.m.; 4140 Woodward Ave., Detroit; majesticdetroit.com; Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door.
