Harlem Stage WaterWorks commissioned artist, Jason ‘Timbuktu’ Diakité, is one of Sweden’s biggest hip hop artists and a best-selling author, and the result is A Drop Of Midnight.

Through storytelling and live music, Diakité brings his biography, A Drop of Midnight, to life at Harlem Stage. Born of American parents with roots in Harlem, South Carolina, and Pennsylvania, this first-generation Swedish artist takes us on a journey that explores racism, bigotry, migration, identity, ancestry, and family, through an unflinching narrative that dares to ask the questions: Where do I belong? Who are my people?  Does my skin define me?  What does blood memory, legacy, and ancestry mean to an African-American family that left Harlem for Sweden?

A Drop of Midnight takes us on a journey from the deep south and slave plantations by way of Harlem to a small Swedish town.

Directed by Farnaz Arbabi, production dramaturgy by Jonathan McCrory, composed by Erik Hjärpe, and accompanied by a live band, The RakiemWalker Project.
