An evening of live music and storytelling at Club Passim in Cambridge. The event included performances by Haitian rapper Masterbrain, who works as a security guard in Back Bay while his songs go viral in Port-au-Prince; Cambodian-American musician Sovann Kohn, who escaped his country’s genocide because of his drumming skills; and Greek laouto player Vasilis Kostas, who will soon apply for a special work visa for “extraordinary” artists. We heard their songs and their stories, told in conversation with the show’s producers.
