PROGRAM NOTE

On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the [Graceland] album, Paul Simon returns to South Africa for a reunion concert. Paul reunites with the band to give a reunion concert and that present tense thread is then used to tell the story of the turbulent birth of the album. Despite it being the first successful example of fusing American and African musical styles, it was initially met with tremendous political crossfire, as Paul was accused of breaking the UN cultural boycott of South Africa designed to end the Apartheid regime. Paul revisits these ghosts as the musical journey is explored.
