Shakoor Hakeem and Ben Miller

Listen to an improvised, savory, and sonic tasty treat as dessert is served live from the WRTI Performance Studio on Facebook Live by the ensemble Taste & Sound, which includes Philly-based chef and culinary instrumentalist Ben Miller and Amsterdam-based percussionist Shakoor Hakeem. WRTI's J. Michael Harrison is your host.

Watch the live performance here on WRTI's Facebook page.

The performance will serve up a delectable musical appetizer in advance of Taste & Sound's 2020 residency at South Philly Barbacoa, scheduled for January 28th to 30th.

The duo has developed a musical performance that incorporates all elements of a meal being prepared—the spontaneous reaction and interplay of the sounds create a unique live musical atmosphere, as guests enjoy the delicious results of the creation.
