Kingsley Ibeneche will play The Barnes Foundation’s College Night
Experimental artist Kingsley Ibeneche is set to play The Barnes Foundation’s third annual College Night, in partner with Campus Philly, on October 19th. Throughout the month of October, The Barnes will be celebrating the fifth anniversary of their move to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway with a series of events that reflect the Barnes Foundation’s commitment to community engagement.
Kingsley Ibeneche is no stranger to performance: he’s trained professionally in ballet from University of the Arts in Philadelphia, and soon after graduation he pursued a modern dance tour through Europe. He’s appeared onstage with Kate Faust as a dancer, but as a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and songwriter, has begun performing his own material lately as well.
In May 2017, Ibeneche dropped his first EP, CHi, whichdelivers a range of dynamic tones and explores hip-hop, EDM and folk rhythms and textures. Catch him live at The Barnes’s free event on October 19th; more information can be found here.
