A true musical multi-hyphenate, John Forté is a classically trained violinist, record executive, and Grammy-nominated solo artist who has contributed his songwriting and production talents to The Fugees, Carly Simon, Talib Kweli, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and many others. Acclaimed for his versatility and innovative spirit, he is currently recording a new album and writing a memoir to be published by Simon and Schuster.

This live performance follows the BAMcinématek screening of The Russian Winter, a film documenting Forté’s tour of Russia in 2011, and the opening night film of the TransCultural Express series Russian Cinema Now. He will be joined by international hip-hop artist SunSay and other musicians Forté collaborated with on his 2011 tour.

TransCultural Express: Russian and American Arts Today is proudly co-presented in partnership with the Mikhail Prokhorov Fund
