Elysium Furnace Works is proud to present as part of its continuing 2021 season in Beacon, NY the boundary-pushing duo of Ras Moshe Burnett and Dafna Naphtali. Fresh off their debut recording Fuse Box, longtime associates multi-instrumentalist Burnett (returning to the Howland Cultural Center for the first time in eight years) and electronic artist/vocalist Naphtali conjure liberated sonic textures both otherworldly and deeply rooted.

Tickets will be $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Attendees must provide proof of COVID vaccination: a picture of a CDC vaccination card, or various COVID “passports” etc., will be acceptable forms of proof for admission to the HCC for this concert.
