The father-and-son duo are booked in the Zionkirche this September.
The American minimalist pioneer will appear with his son, an accomplished guitarist who's previously been commissioned by the Kronos Quartet and performed with Lou Reed. The duo will play their own compositions both solo and together in Mitte's Zionkirche from 8 PM. It will be their only performance in Berlin this year.
Riley had this to say about appearing with his son: "Nothing I have done in this life has given me more satisfaction than improvising on these songs with Gyan. Nothing I have done can match the intuitive synchronicity we have shared many times on the stage. Gyan supplies a brilliant counterpoint to the strands and moods of these pieces always surprising me with a virtuosity that serves and energizes his musical invention. I could not have dreamed up a better marriage of mind and spirit than this collaboration."
